Y-Shifts provide accurate, repeatable axial alignment on the Y-axis, and might be used in conjunction with a sample transfer arm, such as a PowerProbe, to effect sample handoff. The robust, production-proven devices offer true UHV performance and are available in two sizes providing +/-7.5mm or +/-31mm Y axis adjustment, with four different fixed/travelling flange combinations.
Suitable for use in both production and R&D applications, the Y-Shifts are supplied with a range of actuation methods including manual hand wheels or stepper motors. Motorised Y-Shifts are supplied with pre-wired bakeable limit switches,
terminating with a bakeable, frame-mounted connector.
Plug and play motor controllers are available.
