The Triple Axis PowerProbe (TAPP) has two concentric output shafts providing two independent axes of motion. Linear and rotary motion of the outer shaft is provided through a high power magnetic coupling, driven by the thimble.
Compared with conventional devices the Triple Axis Power Probe provides more than 10 times the thrust and 4 times the torque with exceptional axial stiffness.
In addition to linear and rotary motion the thimble incorporates a unique secondary linear motion that can be used to lock/unlock samples held by a gripping end-effector.
This PowerProbe variant is ideally suited to system designers who need linear and rotary motion with an independent end-effector mechanism. When ordered with an end-effector the Triple Axis Power Probe provides the ultimate in secure sample transfer.
Two standard end-effectors are offered to grip and safely transfer industry-standard surface analysis flag and puck sample holders.
