Linear transfers



The linear transfers are designed to transport sample holders/samples between chambers. They are commonly used to transfer samples from load lock chambers to system main chambers.


The linear transfers are pumped by the system vacuum pump set or else with a dedicated pump set. The entire movement range of the transfer mechanism is via a rotary motion feedthrough. The range of the transfer movement is from 400 to 1600mm.

There are 2 types of linear transfers available:

• With forward movement only

• With forward movement and continuous rotation around the movement axis

Our linear transfer mechanisms are fully mechanical and without any magnetic parts which means both direct movement and closer access without slack, even after many years and hundreds of bakeout cycles.

• Ceramic bearings

• No magnetic field
