PI Offers Hexapod 6-Axis Motion Systems for Precision Automation Applications
This video showcases PI Hexapods that provide a unique way of controlling motion with six degrees of freedom. One of the key differentiators to traditional multi-axis positioning systems is the randomized, software-programmable pivot point. Hexapods are manufactured by PI in various shapes and sizes, and they are capable of handling nano-meter precision motion of small loads to sub-micron precision handling units for equipment with several tons. All drive types can be matched to meet the conditions of individual applications. Other features of the motion systems are high stiffness, low moving mass, central aperture, user programmable central of rotation, motion simulation, self-locking, and longer XY travel are offered.
