Abstract

The work has now been nearly completed and has shown that it is possible to produce a complex vacuum envelope to the most onerous standards of integrity and leak tightness. Mechanisms carrying unusually large loads can also be devised to work in ultra-high vacuum environments. The electrical connector, the rams and the probe translation mechanisms could well have applications on other systems. Useful data on friction and wear performance under these conditions is being accumulated.
