The Cybaman Manipulator is high
capacity robot which can rotate samples of up to 20kg weight. Used in
conjunction with the SScanSS virtual laboratory software, it can be used
to automatically orient a sample so that any strain component can be
measured in one set-up. SScanSS can also calculate the optimum rotation
about the strain measurement direction to minimise attenuation of the
neutron beam through the sample.
