Many vacuum applications such as sample transfer, beamline diagnostic positioning and sample positioning for analysis require precise manipulation along Y or XYZ axes.
UHV Design provides a field-proven range of precise manipulators that can be used in isolation or combined with linear shift mechanisms and magnetically coupled rotary drives to build sophisticated manipulators with up to six axes of independent motion.
All of our manipulators benefit from kinematic design which ensures smooth, precise motion, high load capability and a minimum bellows design life of 10,000 cycles.
Manipulators can be configured using our modular XY in combination with linear shift mechanism (XYZ) and XYZT stages. Options include:
• Bellows support tubes
• Service collars
• Rotary drives providing up to 2 additional axes of manipulation
In addition to this modular approach we provide complete sample manipulation
solutions which include sample heating, cooling and rotation.
