Particle Accelerators

An established part of the community

Working alongside the particle accelerator community, we’ve been asked to solve a range of specific manipulation challenges - particularly in beam diagnostics.

Customisable for any application

At UHV Design, we can rapidly and competitively customise our products to make them suitable for a variety of applications. This includes meeting the required facility wiring and communications specifications. Examples of our custom actuators include:

Beam Profile Monitors

  • High precision, high-reliability actuation
  • High-speed options up to 1000mm/s
  • Custom motor, encoder and wiring options
  • Suitable for Diamond window detectors, YAG screen scintillator and wire scanners

Beam Shaping Devices

  • High precision, high-reliability actuation
  • Suitable for heavy assemblies
  • Custom motor, encoder and wiring options
  • Suitable for most common beam shaping assemblies, e.g. cooled tungsten blocks

Magnet Core Reset Devices

  • Reliable, long-life actuation
  • Precise operation
  • Custom motor, encoder and wiring options
  • Suitable for passing electrical feedthrough and pad assemblies

X-ray Wavefront Detector

  • Magnetically-coupled rotary drive
  • High torque, reliable actuation
  • Custom actuation and wiring options
  • Suitable for rapidly driving a cam and detector assembly

Beam Filters (Attenuators)

  • Reliable, long-life actuation
  • Precise operation
  • Custom motor, encoder and wiring options
  • Suitable for water-cooled filter assemblies and standard attenuators

Custom Projects

  • Large design catalogue of base products
  • Extensive experience of working with major particle accelerators on custom projects
