Sample transfer arms

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

Key Features

  • Secure transfer of samples
  • Unrivalled magnetic coupling strength
  • Unrivalled thrust performance
  • 4 Nm (3 lbf ft) break-away torque
  • Angular rigidity
  • Stiff coupling
  • Fully bakeable to 250°C
