MD16N/MD16A solid range

MD16N & MD16A Series

CF16, 1.33" OD flange, Solid MagiDrive series

The MD16 rotary feedthrough is the ‘work horse’ of the MagiDrive series. This standard drive provides sufficient torque for the majority of miniature feedthrough requirements. The MD16N variant provides 0.45Nm torque. The MD16A provides the highest torque on the market for a CF16 flange (1.8Nm) and is ideal for shutter applications. It is bakeable to 250oC without having to remove the outer magnet assembly.
