Linear/Rotary Feedthrough with Adjustable Rotation Limit

Product code: MD40(RL)-XXXX-YYYY

We recommend MD40 miniature linear-rotary feed-throughs as compact sample transporters for short and intermediate linear travel ranges. Usually up to 400mm travel, although up to 750mm is possible. Used wherever it is necessary to perform a rotary motion at a specific linear position, this version includes an adjustable rotation limit. Due to its relatively high torque of 0.5Nm and linear force of 30N, the manipulator transfers a considerable force to any gear inside the vacuum. A high torque version with 1Nm and 60N is also available.


A tube-support must be purchased with this product. Please see the options below.


Order code standard configuration:

  • 100mm travel: MD40(RL)-0100-0030 (-TSMD or -TSMDH)
  • 200mm travel: MD40(RL)-0200-0030 (-TSMD or -TSMDH)
  • 300mm travel: MD40(RL)-0300-0030 (-TSMD or -TSMDH)
  • 400mm travel: MD40(RL)-0400-0030 (-TSMD or -TSMDH)
Order code customized configuration:

XXXX: linear travel in millimetres
YYYY: retracted length, flange face to end of the shaft in millimetres


Please select from one of the tube-supports below. This support is necessary for the rotation lock.
