Dual Shaft Sample Transporter with Motorized Linear and Double Rotary Drive and PGRMS


The RMDG40-DRVRMOTLRR-PGRMS(OMH) is a linear-rotary sample transporter with independent rotation of the inner as well as the outer shaft, equipped with a stepper motor-driven linear and double rotary actuator as well as a hard Grip Straight Pincer for SHOM Sample Plates.

A high precision motorized spindle drive is coupled to the outer magnet of the RMDG40-PGRMS(OMH) and controls linear motion. Two further stepper motors mounted onto the sledge of the linear unit control the independent rotation of the inner and outer shaft respectively. This separate rotation of each shaft enhances operation of the PGRMS(OMH) pincer by being able to open/close and also rotate it. The sturdy linear unit ensures unchanging alignment of all components and consistent positioning.

Please note that for bakeout the drive must be removed.
