Automation & precision

The BladeBot automates the process of creating thin films from solutions.  Experiments with varying parameters can be performed without operator influence ensuring reproducibility.   Gain ultimate control - down to the microliter, micrometer and millisecond!   Get optimum results every time. 

  • Fully automated processing and optoelectronic characterization of
  • Series of identical samples
  • Multi-layer stacks
  • Variations in parameters: blade speed, ink, annealing temperatures…
  • System based on a robotic arm with pipetting module and gripper to transport substrates, substrate carriers and vial lids.
