MagneMotion wins contract LITE with Utah lab
DEVENS — MagneMotion Inc., which makes advanced transport systems used in manufacturing-automation applications, said this week that a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference library has agreed to use MagneMotion’s MagneMover LITE transport system.
Financial terms with ARUP Laboratories, an enterprise of the University of Utah, were undisclosed.
MagneMotion officials said in a press release that the MagneMover LITE conveyor system is about 300 meters long and will provide speed and precision for lab samples processed daily in Salt Lake City. The system is expected to be fully operational by 2014.
MagneMotion, based at 139 Barnum Road, also offers motor systems for high-performance assembly, process, test and manufacturing automation. Its technology is used in a new class of shipboard elevators developed for the Navy, officials said in the release.
