There are many different methods of transfer under vacuum, each transfer device having its own particular advantages and disadvantages. The method(s) chosen are normally a ‘best compromise’ solution against price and performance.
Using a combination of several types of transport device allows multiple processes or experiments to be carried out on the same sample in several different locations within a vacuum system. Meeting these requirements means the transport system becomes a highly integral part of the system. Indeed, it means the vacuum system is designed with the transport system in mind.
There are also situations where it is not possible to use a certain type of transporter. An example is a magnetic linear drive which might not be suitable if stray magnetic fields could be a problem. In these instances the choice of suitable transport device may be limited.
VG Scienta offer a very comprehensive range of transfer and transport devices. From the basic wobble stick which provides the most economic form of sample transfer, to the unique designs of the hollow wobble stick, multi-functional mechanical hand and XL25 transfer system, to the more elaborate and novel design of the R2P2 sample distribution system which offers unrivaled performance and sample transfer capability.
