Many of today’s applications require precision in tip attachment and positioning. To accomplish this, Hamilton utilizes proprietary Compressed O-Ring Expansion (CORE) technology. CO-RE technology attaches disposable tips using a highly robust lock-and-key style mechanism. This enables a positional precision of + 0.1mm on all axes. The system requires virtually no vertical force for tip attachment or ejection, thus eliminating mechanical stress and minimizing the production of aerosols. Reduced stress also improves overall system reliability and throughput.
