Precision Magnetic Manipulator (PMM) Add-Ons and Accessories

An assortment of vacuum accessories, add-ons and UHV devices extend the capabilities of Transfer Engineerings Precision Magnetic Manipulators. Standard accessories are shown below. Several customer specific variations are shown in the Custom Systems section.

Many secondary motion accessories take advantage of the unique patented design of independent linear and rotary motions on Transfer Engineering high performance Precision Magnetic Manipulators. The DBLRP/M series of PMM uses two independent shafts—a round rotation shaft contained within a strong, hollow, square, linear tube allowing numerous variations in sample movement. Both shafts travel in the linear direction as the magnet carriage is moved forward. Rotating the magnet carriage rotates the inner shaft only. This rotating shaft can be used to operate clamping devices, vertical lift mechanisms, secure locks and rotatable stages or for simple rotation.

This versatile sample mounting system with UHV-compatible electrical connectors can be reliably transferred into a vacuum system using a magnetically-coupled manipulator and repeatedly engaged and disengaged to connectors within the chamber. The VMTEX can be fitted with heaters ranging from 3/8" to 2" in diameter that can reach temperatures up to 1600°C.

These Transferable Experimental Stations can be customized with unique configurations to meet a wide range of applications.

MLRLM, GUIDE ROD AND ROTATIONAL LOCK DEVICE
motion is controlled by gliding the magnet carriage along the manipulator tube or rotating the magnet carriage
On manually operated magnetically-coupled manipulators, motion is controlled by gliding the magnet carriage along the manipulator tube or rotating the magnet carriage. An optional linear guide rod with a rotational locking device is available to prevent rotation while moving in the linear direction.

BHRSS, SECOND ROTARY MOTION
HRSS provides a second rotary motion when used with a DBLRP or DBLRM manipulator
The BHRSS provides a second rotary motion when used with a DBLRP or DBLRM manipulator. Applications for the BHRSS option include flexing a pincher to grab a sample, moving it in a linear motion and then twisting it 90 degrees to go from a horizontal to vertical orientation or to operate a shutter.

MODEL CSS, CARRIAGE STOP SWITCH
The Stop Switch accessory works with all of our PMM system
The Stop Switch accessory works with all of our PMM systems. It provides an electrical signal when the magnet carriage reaches the stop switch so that the PMM can be interlocked to the system control. Applications include restricting the gate valve from closing before the PMM has been retracted or permitting a stage to move in a vertical motion only when the PMM is in position.
