Exceptional performance
PowerProbe

PowerProbe sample transfer arms enable secure transfer of samples within UHV. This is a consequence of their unrivalled magnetic coupling strength. In addition to linear and linear/rotary probes, this extensive range includes the Elevating PowerProbe and the Dual-Axis PowerProbe designed to transfer specific industry-standard sample holders using a variety of actuation methods.

KEY ADVANTAGES

  • Unrivalled axial coupling strength
  • Bakeable to 250℃ without removing any components
  • Exceptional axial stiffness
  • 10x thrust and 4x torque compared to conventional devices
  • Zero backlash under low load

Magnetic Rotary Drives
MagiDrive

The production-proven MagiDrive range of rotary feedthroughs enables rotation to be transferred into a vacuum system using a stiff high flux magnetic coupling. With no bellows, fluids or dynamic seals, the MagiDrive range offers reliable and leak-tight UHV operation.
