Precision Tilt Stages

 

ADC’s tilt stages provide a rigid, accurate motion for general goniometric use. Each stage is stepper motor driven and curved linear bearing guided stages with a rugged anodized aluminum body. The top and bottom mounting surfaces are precision ground to provide an optimal interface.

 

The TS-300, TS-310, TS-400, and TS-410 stages use a tangent bar type mechanism to facilitate the rotary motion. A stepper motor driven linear actuator interfaces to the stage through a limited rotation flexure style bearing. This interface results in a highly resolved, very rigid rotary motion. The stage is guided by preloaded ball type profiled linear rails. An optional optical encoder gives closed loop feedback for the device.

 

The TS-50, TS-90, and TS-160 use curved crossed roller bearings for the highest possible rigidity and profiled trajectory. The drive mechanism is a precision ground worm wheel segment and stepper motor driven worm.

X-Ray Shielding Encapsulated Enclosures

ADC uses Lead/Steel for shielding in x-ray machines, nuclear power plants, labs, military equipment, and other places where radiation may be encountered. Some uses include lead/steel paneling, lead/steel walls, shielded doors, ceiling systems, wall design and other encapsulated enclosures for diagnostic and therapeutic uses. Prefabricated modular lead/steel shielded enclosures consist of free standing structural steel framed panels and doors.

 

To reduce downtime, ADC’s design allows for the quickest on-site installation as possible.  To reach our installation goals, ADC has implemented a highly modular design consisting of major wall segments and ceiling segments (pictured below).  The hutches are shipped as modular pieces after being fully assembled and tested at ADC.

 

The shielding is designed to be assembled from a self-supporting corner as the starting component.  The first segment is placed individually and secured to the corner.  After the initial segment is secured, the next segment slides into place using a tab-and-slot connection.  Adjacent segments can be secured together via bolted connection at the top and bottom after establishing the tab-and-slot connection.  Lifting points are placed in multiple locations to allow positioning by crane.  The final assembly is bolted to the floor.

SwissFEL High Precision Slits (Curtain Design)

http://www.psi.ch/swissfel/swissfel

 

The SwissFEL baseline design produce FEL pulses covering the wavelength range 1 Å to 70 Å (0.1–7 nm) with a compact and economic design.


These custom high precision slits for SwissFEL were designed for UHV that can be used for apertures up to 25mm x 25mm. This curtain slit allows a gap to be set and allows that set gap to be scanned across the full travel. The full range of scan motion allowable for the slit is 25mm. The allowable gap for the slit is 25mm max with 5mm allowable blade overlap. Both the gap and scan axes feature burgess limit switches. Each axis is also encoded using a Renishaw incremental encoder. All of the actuator components (bearing rails, ballscrews, limit switches, encoders, and ballscrews) are located outside of the UHV chamber. This eliminates the need for special lubricants on the actuator bearings. It also allows for the actuators to be adjusted, aligned, and serviced with the system installed on the beamline. A rigid connection between the slit blade and the actuator guarantees that encoder readings at the actuator are accurate.

High Heat Load Filter Array

This Filter Array is designed to position one of five individually selectable filters into the x-ray beam of the Inner Shell Spectroscopy (ISS) beamline at NSLS-II.  Located in the First Optics Enclosure, it reduces the heat load on all downstream components, and filters out selected photon energies based on the material and thickness of the filters installed.  The filter holder is designed to be removable with a minimum of disassembly, to facilitate changes of the installed filters and allow a quick return to operation.  Heat loads of up to 2.7 kW can be absorbed by a filter and carried away by the cooling system.  A stepper motor and ball screw actuator drives the filter holder vertically to select a particular filter, and an additional gap is provided in the filter holder to allow the unfiltered beam to pass through when the actuator rests at its lower hard stop.

Deuterium Cryostat Plugs For Neutron Application

 

A structure was designed for NIST to hold a cryostat assembly. The structure, known as a cryostat plug, will serve as a support for the cryostat support as well as a radiation shield. The plug was built to house the new liquid deuterium cold neutron source that replaced the existing liquid hydrogen source and its plug assembly. The cryostat plug holds the deuterium cryostat inside the cold port of the NBSR reactor.

 

The structure has four rollers on the bottom to roll it in and out of the cold port in the reactor. It also has a roller on each side to ensure that it is properly aligned within the port.

Brookhaven National Laboratory Six Deg. Of Freedom Optical Table

 

http://adc9001.com/products/view/525

 

ADC has designed and built optical table for Brookhaven National Lab (NSLS II) to both support and accurately position research equipment. The optical table has been designed to have 6 Degrees of Freedom with sufficient travel, resolution, and repeatability in each direction to meet all of BNL’s specifications.

This allows for six degrees of freedom for the system. The vertical stages use a Lin Engineering NEMA 23 triple stack stepper motor with a 60:1 right angle gearbox; a Renishaw encoder is used for precision vertical translation. The horizontal stages use the same motor with a 20:1 right angle gearbox. The system also has a base made of granite that weighs around 9.6kN [2200lb]. The base has three heavy duty casters and three adjustable feet for positioning and leveling. The table top is a standard Newport aluminum breadboard with a 1 inch hole pattern.

Pellet Selector/Injector for ITER Project

 

ADC provided the design, engineering, and procurement of material, manufacture, assembly, inspection, test, and installation of a pre-prototype pellet Injector as a part of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor for Oakridge National Lab. Fusion is the process of having the nuclei of two light atoms forming into one heavier nucleus. The result is a release of more energy than put into the action. This is the same process generated by the sun and most other stars.

 

The pellets are directed into three possible plasma locations by the flight tube selector. The pellets exit the selector and travel through flight tubes that penetrate the cryostat and vacuum vessel before entering the plasma on either the outer diameter (low field side) or inner diameter (high field side). The geometries of the flight tubes have been optimized to maximize bend radii over 800 mm to ensure intact pellets traveling at >200 m/s.

Gridded Ionization Chambers

ADC in collaboration with APS/Argonne National Lab has developed a gridded ionization chamber using the present parallel plate ion chamber1.  The original idea for Gridded Ionization Chambers used in Time Resolved X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy was described Journal of Physics: Conference Series 425 (2013) 0920102.  Gridded Ionization Chambers improves bandwidth and reduces rise time compared to standard ion chamber designs.

 

In a parallel plate ion chamber, the ionization current is induced by the presence and locations of ions and electrons within the electric field. The length of the ionization pulse is dependent upon the time that it takes for the ions and electrons to collect on the electrodes. Because of this, the collection speed of standard designs is limited by the velocities of the large, slow moving ions.

 

Using ADC’s new gridded ionization chamber, the ionization current reacts only to the presence of electrons within the electric field while the ion charges are ignored. Eliminating the effects of the slow-moving ions reduces the rise time by roughly at least 10 orders of magnitude. The overall result is a drastic increase in the rise time of the ion chamber.

DLS Double Crystal Deflector

This is a custom double crystal reflector system. The two crystals reflections being used to deflect the beam are Si (111) and Si(220). These crystals are mounted on a stage that allows for adjustable alignment within the beamline, and for their rotation around the beam axis. The radial separation of the second crystal is variable. ADC has developed this double crystal deflector system for DLS that will make it possible to deflect the beam and change the incident angle without moving the sample. This capability could be used for instance when performing Grazing Incidence Small Angle X-ray Scattering (GISAXS) on liquids.

VSANS Instrument for NIST (Very Small Angle Neutron Scattering)

 

ADC is designing and building a large instrument for National Institute of Standards And Technology (NIST). This instrument is similar to a more complex instrument we designed and delivered to Ansto in Australia called the Bilby SANS instrument.

 

The NIST VSANS and the Ansto Bilby SANS instruments have very similar dimensions for length and diameter and have similar requirements for internal detector motion, top access port, walkway supports, and ports; however, the Bilby SANS instrument was more complex because the vacuum requirement was lower (7.5x10-5 Torr) and the entire (60,000 pound) vessel was required to move 1.5 meters on external rails with a repeatability of 100 um, which ADC achieved.

SOLARIS 3-Axis Motorized Positioner High Load, Low Profile, High Precision Device

 

 

http://www.synchrotron.uj.edu.pl/en_GB/

 

The first Polish synchrotron radiation facility Solaris is being built at the Jagiellonian University III-rd Campus in Kraków. Synchrotron is a unique man-made source of electromagnetic radiation known as synchrotron radiation.

 

This custom high load, high precision 3-Axis Motorized system was designed for SOLARIS Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland that allows for vertical axis positioning for a 1500kg load. All three motions are supported on THK rails and driven by a ball screw with a NEMA 23 stepper motor and planetary gearbox. All motions have adjustable limit switches to change the travel within the maximum range.

 

The mechanics allow the three degree of freedom motion of the movable platform work surface. Vertical motion (Z direction) and horizontal transversal motions (Y & X direction) of the platform work surface are controlled and operated by means motorized stages. Limit-switches are of the type normally closed. Linear encoder plus zero marker position have to be provided for all three motions.

SwissFEL High Precision Slits- 45 Degree

http://www.psi.ch/swissfel/swissfel

 

The SwissFEL baseline design produce FEL pulses covering the wavelength range 1 Å to 70 Å (0.1–7 nm) with a compact and economic design.

 

These custom high precision slits for SwissFEL were designed for UHV that can be used for apertures up to 25mm x 25mm. This curtain slit allows a gap to be set and allows that set gap to be scanned across the full travel. The full range of scan motion allowable for the slit is 25mm. The allowable gap for the slit is 25mm max with 5mm allowable blade overlap. Both the gap and scan axes feature burgess limit switches. Each axis is also encoded using a Renishaw incremental encoder. All of the actuator components (bearing rails, ballscrews, limit switches, encoders, and ballscrews) are located outside of the UHV chamber. This eliminates the need for special lubricants on the actuator bearings. It also allows for the actuators to be adjusted, aligned, and serviced with the system installed on the beamline. A rigid connection between the slit blade and the actuator guarantees that encoder readings at the actuator are accurate.

VSANS Instrument for NIST (Very Small Angle Neutron Scattering)

 

ADC is designing and building a large instrument for National Institute of Standards And Technology (NIST). This instrument is similar to a more complex instrument we designed and delivered to Ansto in Australia called the Bilby SANS instrument.

 

The NIST VSANS and the Ansto Bilby SANS instruments have very similar dimensions for length and diameter and have similar requirements for internal detector motion, top access port, walkway supports, and ports; however, the Bilby SANS instrument was more complex because the vacuum requirement was lower (7.5x10-5 Torr) and the entire (60,000 pound) vessel was required to move 1.5 meters on external rails with a repeatability of 100 um, which ADC achieved.

Australia Ion Chamber
Available model:
Australia Ion Chamber
Click on the model no. in the table above for more details.

The Ion Chamber’s design was based on IC-500 series.  The design was modified to meet customer specific requirements for a very large X-ray width.

 

IC-500 series ion chambers are designed for precise, low noise x-ray measurement.  The device allows users to determine the change in beam position in a single axis by comparing two signals that are created as the beam passes through the Ion Chamber. 

 

One unique feature of the IC-500 series precision ion chambers is the incorporation of a split collector plate.  The electrode is split in a saw tooth configuration with a height of approximately 10mm, 15mm, and 25mm such that, when the differential current is computed, allows use as a beam position monitor.

 

ADC offers a large assortment of synchrotron and neutron equipment including; High Precision Slits, Optical Tables, Lead Shielded Beam Pipes, Micro Ion Chambers, Split Two Axis Ion Chambers, Mirror Systems, Monochromators, Spectrometers, Insertion Devices (EPU, Wiggler, Planar, In-Vacuum, Apple), ID Measurement System and many other Beamline Components.  Our products are being used at many synchrotron, neutron, and x-ray facilities around the world including; APS, NSLS, ALS, DLS, NSRRC, BESSY, DESY, CHESS, ESRF, BSRF, CAMD, NSRL, PAL, LNLS, CLS, SSRF, ANKA, KEK, SPring-8, ASP, ELETTRA, MAX-LAB.

International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) Project

 

ADC provided the design, engineering, and procurement of material, manufacture, assembly, inspection, test, and installation of a pre-prototype pellet selector as a part of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor for Oakridge National Lab. Fusion is the process of having the nuclei of two light atoms forming into one heavier nucleus. The result is a release of more energy than put into the action. This is the same process generated by the sun and most other stars. Fusion is also the reason for the massive destructive power in hydrogen bombs. In contrast, fission involves a subatomic particle impacting with and splitting apart an atomic nucleus. All current nuclear reactors and power plants utilize some form of nuclear fission. Fusion power is also much cleaner than fission in terms of releasing radiation into the surrounding environment. The $30 billion ITER program plans to see their first sustained fusion reactions around 2020. For more information please go to: https://www.iter.org/

ANSTO Kookaburra Instrument Slits

Cryostat Dilution Refrigerator

 

 

 

A system was custom designed for the Free Electron Laser for Infrared eXperiments (FELIX) in Netherlands http://www.ru.nl/felix/   that provides both vertical (z) axis positioning and rotation about the z-axis of a Cryo-Free dilution refrigerator from Oxford Instruments (Kelvinox). http://www.oxford-instruments.com/    

 

The FELIX comprises three different beamlines. Two beamlines, FEL1 and FEL2, provide continuously tunable radiation in the spectral range of 2500-40 cm-1 (4-250 mm, 1.2-75 THz) peak powers ranging up to 100 MW in (sub)picosecond pulses, and is being used for scientific research in (bio-)medicine, (bio-)chemistry and (bio-)physics. The third beamline, FELICE, is devoted to intra-cavity experiments on gas phase (bio-)molecules/ions, clusters and complexes.

UHV Slit System….with YAG Crystal

The high precision UHV slit system was designed for DLS I05 Nano ARPES Beamline. http://www.diamond.ac.uk/Beamlines/Surfaces-and-Interfaces/I05.html The total apertures is 25mm x 25mm. Each blade is actuated independently by the 4 actuators mounted to the slit body. This slit system is designed to be especially easy to service. There are no bearing rails, limit switches, encoders, or drive screws within the slit chamber. This eliminates the need for special lubricants and allows the actuators to be adjusted, aligned, and serviced with the system installed in the beamline.

 

This slits application required using fluorescent screen fixed to vertical upper and lower blade, that was single crystal YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet).

Kuka Robotics

 KUKA has been manufacturing industrial robots for more than 40 years. The cornerstone for today’s Industries 4.0 was laid as far back as in the 1970s: with our first industrial robot FAMULUS. In 1996, KUKA Robotics took another quantum leap in the development of industrial robots: that year saw the launch of the first PC-based controller, developed by KUKA. This was the dawn of the “real” mechatronics era, characterized by the precise interaction of software, controller and mechanical systems.

High Pressure Cryo-Cooler for X-Ray Crystallography (HPC-201)

   

ADC is offering a High Pressure Cryo-Cooler for preparing protein crystals. This device is based on a process developed by Cornell University scientists Prof. Sol M. Gruner and Dr. Chae Un Kim. This exciting new technology enables the simultaneous capture of both amplitude and phase information from single anomalous diffraction (SAD) of a cryocooled protein crystal, thereby providing sufficient data to solve the crystal structure of a protein with an unknown structure. Flash-freezing at atmospheric pressure requires the use of cryoprotectants. Finding the right cyroprotectant for a sample type can be a long trial-and-error process. The High Pressure Cryo-Cooler eliminates the need to use cryoprotectants and produces superior results. The scatter images below of a glucose isomerase crystal prepared at atmospheric pressure (left) and under high pressure (right) demonstrate the benefits of high-pressure cryocooling.

 

The high-pressure cryo-cooler is designed to hold 3 samples at a time. Crystal samples are picked up using a standard cryoloop. Cryoloops are mounted to heavy duty stainless steel tubing in the unit and are then ready to be pressurized and cooled. A high pressure oil pump provides helium gas to the samples. External controls allow the sample to be first pressurized and then cooled by a LN2 bath. Once pressure is released the samples can be removed and handled like any other samples prepared by the conventional flash freezing.

Radar Cross Section (RCS) Test Range

 

For Higher Quality viewing please visit:

ADC is in collaboration with NASA Langley Research Center is completing a turn-key design, build, and install major components for an updated indoor radar cross section and antenna measurement range. Modern radar systems, which include specialized active antennas, microwave circuits and devices, are governed by underlying electromagnetic physics. Designing sophisticated motion systems pushes the limits of engineering to solve ever-larger and more complex electromagnetic radiation and scattering problems. The RCS NASA Experimental Test Range consists of a rail positioning system and four rail positioning carriages: antenna measurement positioner, RCS pylon, azimuth rotator, and an electric manlfit. A switching station allows for rail positioning carriages to be quickly moved on and off of the rail system. Within the test chamber there is also a string reel positioning system capable of moving objects within a 40’ x 40’ x 25’ volume.

Custom Monochromatic UHV Slits BL02B at SSRF

 

This slit system designed for BL02B at SSRF in China consists of two copies of a reversible slit (new standard product SLT-610-250) and two horizontal linear translation stages (DS-400-50 stages).  The slits are reversible to allow for the required 400 mm spacing between the x-ray beams where the slits will be installed.  Each slit contains four electrically isolated tantalum blades moved independently by four of ADC’s rugged external actuators originally developed in a project for MAX IV in Sweden.  The blade monitoring wires run through the support structure holding each blade and up to a BNC connection near the top of the actuator.

Soft X-ray Scattering Octupole End Station
Available model:
Soft X-ray Scattering Octupole End Station
Click on the model no. in the table above for more details.

The Octupole End Station is used for soft X-ray scattering in magnetic dichroism (XMD) experiments. The system is mainly used for three applications, i.e., constant field for the duration of an x-ray absorption scan, point-by-point field reversal for an XMD photon energy scan, and hysteresis loop measurements.

 

The ADC Octupole is based on earlier designs and work performed by Elke Arenholz and Soren O. Prestemon at Advanced Light Source, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, Ca. ADC improved on the ALS design and has performed several design improvement iterations (see chart below)

 

Eight conical electro magnets (coils) are equidistantly spaced about the surface of a sphere to create an omnidirectional field vector with a magnitude of 1 [T]. The magnets protrude into an ultra high vacuum chamber with a base pressure of 5E-10 [mbar] that houses both the sample and detector apparatus. The entire system is then capable of tilt rotation vertically about the beam axis +/- 45O. The 1T field is achieved by the combination of fields from 2 or more coils.

 

Technical Specification Base System:

  • Peak field magnitude of 1T
  • Field uniformity of 5% over 10mm cube
  • Field vector rotatable in any direction
  • 8 magnet coils
  • Water cooling for 8 coils
  • Base frame, kinematic, adjustable, 304 SS,
  • Detector 360O rotation goniometer
  • Top sample access
  • Sample rotation axis
  • UHV operation @ 5E-10mbar
  • RGA Analysis
  • Water flow sensors
  • Ports for sample, pumping, detector, observation, beamline, vacuum gage, spare

DS500-50

The  DS500   Series  linear  slides   provide  an   accurate and  rigid  platform  for   use  in  any  positioning system. The  rugged  black  anodized aluminum housing features a precision ground base and top plate, each with multiple utility  holes  for  easy  integration  into the users' system. The  stage  is driven by a high class preloaded ball screw coupled  to a  high torque 200 step per revolution stepper motor  which can be  run  in  full, half, or micro stepping mode  to meet  your  resolution requirements. Maximum rigidity  is assured  through  the use of preloaded crossed roller  linear bearings.  Each  slide also features two fully adjustable, normally  closed  limit  switches to define the extents of travel.

KEY FEATURES
  • Travels 100 mm
  • 1.0 µm Bidirectional Repeatability
  • 200 Step/Revolution Stepper Motor
  • Load Capacity up to 575kg
  • High Performance

ADC manufactures high quality motion control products and systems that are qualified for Semi-conductor, Automation, and Aerospace industries.  Our extensive product line includes;  linear stages, lift stages (Jacks), rotation stages, goniometers, gantry systems, optical tables, vacuum compatible motion systems, and Nanotechnology positioners.

HV & UHV Goniometers

ADC’s tilt stages provide a rigid, accurate motion for general goniometric use. Each stage is stepper motor driven and curved linear bearing guided stages with a rugged anodized aluminum body. The top and bottom mounting surfaces are precision ground to provide an optimal interface.

 

The TS-300, TS-310, TS-400, and TS-410 stages use a tangent bar type mechanism to facilitate the rotary motion. A stepper motor driven linear actuator interfaces to the stage through a limited rotation flexure style bearing. This interface results in a highly resolved, very rigid rotary motion. The stage is guided by preloaded ball type profiled linear rails. An optional optical encoder gives closed loop feedback for the device.

 

The TS-50, TS-90, and TS-160 use curved crossed roller bearings for the highest possible rigidity and profiled trajectory. The drive mechanism is a precision ground worm wheel segment and stepper motor driven worm.

 

The UHV version of the TS series tilt stages are designed to function in a 10-9 torr environment.
