Nor-Cal Products offers the researcher complimentary devices for sample transfer and positioning in ultra-high vacuum systems. Combined with our vacuum chambers, load locks, gate valves, all-metal valves, feedthroughs, viewports, frames and roughing accessories, we can provide a complete turn-key research system. There are many factors that influence the selection of a sample transfer system such as sample size and motion, heating and cooling, chamber geometry, size of chamber tubulations, actuation motion, compatibility with other components, and ease and reliability of operation. Our sample transfer and manipulation devices are made from the highest quality materials and lubricants to withstand repeated UHV bakeouts. Each standard component can readily be customized to meet our customer’s specific requirements, such as sample heating and cooling, special lengths or stepper motor drivers.
