Qualifying Positioning Systems with PI’s Heavy-Duty Lifting and Rotating Platform
The video shows a heavy-duty lifting and rotating platform designed by Physik Instrumente (PI) for test and qualification purposes. The platform has a capacity up to 10 tons load and includes free rotation by 360° degrees. This enables PI to calibrate even ultra-high-load positioning systems in random positions in space: the selected position is equivalent to the ultimate position at the customer's installation. Since measurement equipment and positioner are mounted on the same platform, it is ensured that only the actual motions are being recorded. These motions are demonstrated using a 200 kg- Hexapod with an extra load of 400 kg.
