TETRAXE Configuration Example

TETRAXE is the perfect compact platform on which to build complex manipulators. By combining the XYZT manipulation provided by TETRAXE with magnetcially coupled rotary feedthroughs, service collars and a range of shaft options, multi-axis manipulators can be configured to suit the required application.

Key Features

  • TETRAXE provides the perfect platform to build complex manipulators
  • CF40, CF63 & CF100 flange options
  • Z translation to 300mm
  • X&Y manipulation up to +/-15mm

TTX63 + Outer Shaft Rotation + Inner Shaft Rotation

In this example a manually actuated TETRAXE (part number: TTX63-250-H) with 250mm stroke and +/-15mm X & Y motion has been combined with  a  hollow magnetically-coupled rotary feedthrough with additional rotary feedthrough to provide primary rotation of the outer shaft and independent secondary rotation of the inner shaft.

Configuration Specification:

X&Y Motion

Manually actuated +/- 15mm X & Y travel.

Z Translation

Manually actuated 250mm Z translation.


Manual +/- 2 degree tilt integrated in to the mounting flange.

Rotation 1 (Primary Rotation)

Manually actuated continuous rotation of the outer shaft.

Rotation 2 (Secondary Rotation)

Manually actuated independent rotation of the inner shaft which passes through the bore of the hollow Rotation 1 rotary feedthrough. Learn more about hollow magidrives here.

Extended Bearing Housing

Providing shaft support and improved rotational concentricity.
