UHV XY Manipulators

UHV XY Manipulators for vacuum device manipulation.

The XY Stage is a precision, high rigidity UHV specimen translator having X and Y motions. Standard mounting flange is DN 160CF. A DN 100CF mounting flange version is also available. The translator can work in any orientation.

The UHV XY Manipulators have been designed for ease and convenience of use. X and Y movement is +/- 12.5 mm, depending on the accessories that are fitted. They can also be used to reposition a chamber port with an axis that is parallel to, but slightly off, the desired direction. In this last usage it is sometimes referred to as an XY adjuster and is a very economical alternative to other devices.

Additional information
The XY Stages are often combined with Z Shifts to produce a high precision XYZ manipulator with three degrees of freedom. The XY Stage can also be fitted with stepper motors for applications requiring highest accuracy.
