Applications in scientific research and industrial production often require motion and positioning in a vacuum.
Several factors influence the quality of the vacuum environment. One of the main challenges is outgassing of the components used. Manufacturers address this by providing standardized vacuum-ready or customized products that meet the requirements of high-vacuum (HV) and ultra-high-vacuum (UHV) applications.
This article focuses on motorized positioners for vacuum applications and describes how those are designed, manufactured and tested regarding their specific requirements.
