Many vacuum processes require a sample or other components to be moved around the vacuum system. We offer a comprehensive range of rotation and linear motion components, including UHV Linear Drives, Wobble Sticks and Transfer Probes.
UHV Linear Actuators can be used for a range of applications, such as inserting plasma diagnostic equipment into the main chamber or small distance travel moving electron optics nearer to a loaded sample. Hollow and Solid Shaft Linear Transfer.
Rotary drives are used where a vacuum process requires a sample or components to be accurately rotated within the vacuum chamber. This can range from something as simple as spinning an attenuating chopper wheel, to accurately moving a sample to face from one analyser to another.
Ideally located at all interchange points in the vacuum system, where a sample must be transferred for example, between a transport device and a sample holder.
Providing smooth sample transfer movement within the vacuum chamber, where high accuracy is not required.
High precision Rack & Pinion linear travel with optional rotation, with both axis controlled by rotary drives.
Differentially Pumped Rotary Feedthroughs provides the means of translating rotation through a vessel wall without losing vacuum integrity, enabling probes to be inserted without effect on the chamber pressure.
