Keeping DOMO happy

|

Hello DOMO users,

DOMO is fairly robust, and is capable of handling your precious crystals mounted in a variety of bases:

However, you must take some care when gluing or epoxying the pins into the bases. If there is too much glue or epoxy or you inadvertantly get some on the sides or bottom of the base this will cause the robot to jam, which will require time-wasting reset procedures, lost samples, and unhappy beamline support personnel.

Here is a recent example of several pins where the user (who will remain unnamed) applied entirely too much epoxy. Somehow the user was able to load these pins into the cassette, but they caused the robot to jam.

There are more detailed tips and hints on the SSRL SMB website for preparing your bases and pins.
