  • Precision industrial ball screw translator offers excellent reliability
  • A variety of mounting flange options, such as CF35, CF64 and CF100, are available
  • Customization options are available for wiring, encoders, and switches to match facility standards
  • Bellows ensure a minimum of 50,000 cycles as standard with options to upgrade to 500,000 and 1 million cycles

Speed and Precision

Beamline diagnostic developments constantly need quicker actuation speeds without affecting the repeatability or accuracy. In response to this requirement, UHV DESIGN LTD has developed the FAB drive using a linear potentiometer, a high torque motor, and a precision ball screw to offer the needed performance.

Apart from the technical performance, UHV DESIGN LTD works closely with its customers to match any encoder, switch, wiring, and motor preference on its actuators, making sure that installation and commission processes are as simple as possible.

Listed below are the customization options:

  • Gearbox and motor
  • Limit and home switches
  • Linear potentiometer or encoder
  • Choice of connectors and wiring standards
