XWS40 UHV Wobble Stick Range
The XWS40 range of wobble sticks is tailor-made for precise, manual manipulation of a variety of sample holders. To do so, it utilises UHV Design's high power magnetic coupling technology. And by using only ceramic and metal parts, it offers exceptionally low outgassing.
The slimline modular design provides in-line and right-angle variants - along with a choice of end-effectors for Flag, Puck and ESCA stub style sample holders. As standard, the XWS40 includes an integrated brake thumbscrew.
The XWS40 includes the 'Flag in-line toggle' option, allowing secure transfer of flag style sample holders via a innovative 'twist & lock' mechanism. This prevents accidental damage to the flag sample handle.
- In-line and right-angled version with +/-22° tilt
- 100-350mm stroke range (50mm increments) - Note: longer strokes are available upon request. Contact us for details.
- Bakeout to 250°C without the need to remove the outer magnet assembly
- Choice of end effectors for flag, puck and esca stub (see below)
- No thrust due to vacuum
