Advancements in Rotor Design for Automated Centrifuge

With the development of biomedical, chemical and pharmaceutical fields, automated centrifuge, as an important laboratory equipment, are expanding their performance and application scope. As one of the core components of automated centrifuge, the design of rotor is directly related to the performance and use effect of automatic centrifuges. This paper will discuss the research progress of rotor design of automated centrifuge, including four aspects.

Challenges and Needs of Rotor Design

In the working process of automated centrifuge, the rotor bears the huge centrifugal force brought by high-speed rotation, and also needs to ensure the uniform separation and purification of samples. Therefore, rotor design faces many challenges, such as improving the strength and stability of the rotor, reducing noise and vibration, and optimising the automatic centrifugal effect. At the same time, with the continuous improvement of laboratory needs, rotor design also needs to meet the needs of higher precision, larger capacity and wider adaptability.

The Innovative Technology of Rotor Design

In order to meet the challenges of rotor design and satisfy the laboratory needs, researchers continue to explore new technologies and methods. Among them, the development of material science provides more options for rotor design. New high-strength materials such as carbon fibre composites and titanium alloys are widely used in rotor manufacturing, which greatly improve the strength and stability of rotors. In addition, advanced manufacturing processes such as 3D printing technology also brings more possibilities for rotor design, which can produce more complex and precise rotor structure.

Optimisation Strategies for Rotor Design

In the process of rotor design, the use of optimisation strategies can further improve the performance and use of the rotor. For example, through hydrodynamic analysis and numerical simulation and other methods, the flow channel design and speed distribution of the rotor can be optimized to reduce noise and vibration and improve the automated centrifugal effect. At the same time, the use of advanced sensors and control systems, real-time monitoring of the rotor's operating status and performance parameters, timely adjustment and optimisation.

The Future Outlook of Rotor Design

With the continuous progress of science and technology and laboratory needs continue to improve, rotor design will continue to usher in new development opportunities. In the future, rotor design will pay more attention to environmental protection and sustainability, using more environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes. At the same time, with the application of artificial intelligence and big data and other technologies, rotor design will also be more intelligent and personalised, and can be customised and optimised according to different experimental needs. In addition, rotor design will be combined with technologies in other fields, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, etc., to open up new paths for the development and application of automated centrifuge.

In conclusion, the research progress in rotor design for automated centrifuge reflects the continuous efforts and innovations of researchers in addressing challenges and meeting needs. In the future, with the continuous emergence and application of new technologies, rotor design will continue to usher in new development opportunities and challenges.
