Broadband ferromagnetic resonance is a useful technique to determine the magnetic anisotropy and study the magnetization dynamics of magnetic thin films. We report a spring-loaded sample loading manipulator for reliable sample mounting and rotation. The manipulator enables maximum signal, enhances system stability, and is particularly useful for fully automated in-plane-field angle-resolved measurements. This angle-resolved broadband ferromagnetic resonance apparatus provides a viable method to study anisotropic damping and weak magnetic anisotropies, both vital for fundamental research and applications.
