Space-Efficient Radial Transfer Arm serves vacuum applications.

September 25, 2014

Radial Telescopic Transfer Arm (RTTA) provides sample reach of 760 mm beyond chamber connection flange. When fully retracted, arm will fit in chamber with ID of 630 mm and can hold up to 138 mm dia samples. Rotary feedthrough MagiDrives are used to achieve necessary actuation. While MD64LB has break-away torque of ~40 nm and provides stiff coupling, MD35 actuates mechanisms to drive arm in and out. True UHV rotation allows reproducibility of ≤0.5 mm fully extended to end stop. Read More

Piston Ring features steel-wire design.

September 23, 2014

Based on NanoNapier Steel technology, Piston Ring uses chrome-silicon steel to replace cast iron traditionally used for second of three rings found on gasoline-powered spark-ignition engines. Benefits include elimination of foundry-related defects, minimized engine-oil consumption, and substantial face- and side-wear resistance. In addition, thinner axial height and radial thickness can make engines capable of operating with less vibration and friction at higher rpm. Read More
