Unipuck gripper - IRELEC

The Unipuck gripper is intended to mount and unmount samples stored inside Universal pucks v1 onto a goniometer (dry mounting). This gripper can operate with Spine caps and similar magnetic caps as, for instance, CrystalCap ALS or Hampton CrystalCap.

Two different Unipuck grippers are available:

  • A magnetic gripper 
    Intended to operate with an electro-magnet or a permanent magnet with a low magnetic force
  • A cryotong-type gripper
    Intended to operate with a permanent magnet with a high magnetic force. The goniometer head should have a sufficient clearance to enable the sample grabbing.

Both grippers can be single or dual ones.
