Port Aligners

Used to align transfer axes of manipulator-to-chamber or chamber-to-chamber systems, port aligners are indispensable for most sample manipulations and transfer mechanics in UHV.

While all types of port aligner allow for angular and linear adjustments and compensation, the "HEX" models additionally enable lateral axis displacement.

Thanks to this enhanced flexibility, the axis of for example a sample transporter can be aligned with two different sample exchange positions in just one setting.
Hexapod port aligners are also especially sturdy.
