High Vacuum, Model MAHVM, Magnetic-coupled Manipulator

Common UHV and high-vacuum applications for the DBROM include activating shutters, rotating sample carriers, driving gimbal mechanisms, selecting targets and rotating wafers.

High Vacuum, Model MAHVM, Magnetic-coupled Manipulator with Linear and Rotary Motion

The Model MAHVM is a single-shaft magnetically-coupled manipulator for basic transfer in high-vacuum applications. The MAHVM has linear motion and 360° rotation.

The magnet carriage of the Model MAHVM slides along the outer tube on polymeric bushings (outside of vacuum) providing a slight amount of stiction. The linear shaft is supported with a teflonTM sleeve.

All units are manufactured to customer specified travel lengths and shafts can be customized with holes, flats, etc. for unique applications. PMMs can be operated manually or combined with motorized drive assemblies.

CUSTOMIZED MAGNETIC MANIPULATORS


Customized Magnetic Manipulators

Precision Magnetic Manipulators can be customized to meet a wide range of configurations. Internal shafts can be machined with threads, threaded holes, flats or slots. Shafts can be constructed of different materials such as the quartz shaft shown for use in a furnace. Optional items such as bakeable magnets and configurations with triple the de-coupling force are just a few examples. Call us to discuss your requirements.
