Precision Magnetic Manipulators
Custom SystemsPrecision Magnetic Manipulators
Numerous applications exist that require moving an object (i.e. a wafer, disk, or target) within an ultra-high vacuum (UHV) system. Typically samples will be transferred in the linear direction between chambers or from a loadlock into a chamber. Rotation or other manipulation may also be required. The wide range of motions of the standard line of Transfer Engineering Precision Magnetic Manipulators fill many of these needs. However in response to customer requests for unique applications, Transfer Engineering has modified and continues to develop transporters and devices to perform specific tasks. Variations include high force manipulators, multiple shafts, hollow or solid shafts, and unique shaft materials,and lengths. A few customized manipulators are shown below.
