One Axis Manipulators

R1 Axis Manipulator


The manipulator with R1 Rotation is a high precision, high rigidity, UHV specimen manipulator of modular construction, suitable for a range of R1 manual rotations. The standard mounting flange is DN 100CF (optionally DN 160CF).


The manipulator is used for manipulating sample holders and scientific tools with respect to a sample’s position. These manipulators, when combined with sample holders, allow precise placement and manipulation of samples in UHV environments. The manipulator has an integral rotary drive providing rotation R1 rotation around the Z axis. It can work in any orientation.

Additional information

The manipulator is configured with a Sample Receiving Station that accepts one of our ‘PTS’ range of sample holders. The station is equipped with 6 electrical contacts (2 x thermocouple type K, C or E; 2 x sample bias up to 1000V, 2 x heating current up to 20A) and sapphire ball cooling contact for liquid nitrogen cooling. The manipulator includes all of the necessary electrical, gas and mechanical feedthroughs.
