Automounters are intended to help maximize throughput at synchrotron beam lines where heavy shielding and safety interlocks slow manual access to the experiment. A sizable number of crystals can be stored in the hutch, accessed randomly, mounted and dismounted; all without entering the hutch.

The BAM-2 automounter in use at MAcCHESS beamline F1 is controlled primarily through the ADX data collection interface, and a separate BAM-2 interface provides access to additional features.

Productive use of an automounter requires the appropriate equipment.

MacCHESS maintains a few loaner kits for users who would like to try out the automounter, but do not have equipment of their own.
