We bought a liteplacer kit from http://www.liteplacer.com/

Here are some observations and minor improvements we cam up with here and there:

Grounding the machine elements

The official liteplacer assembly guide does not go into much detail when it comes to ESD and grounding the liteplacer machine parts: http://www.liteplacer.com/select-a-table/ There are sliding parts moving on rubber wheels so ESD needs to be dealt with.

We came up with a way of connecting together and grounding all metal parts of the liteplacer with 4mm rings.
