Controlling Hexapod 6-DOF Alignment Robots via EtherCAT

Six-axis hexapod robots are becoming increasingly popular precision alignment and positioning solutions for manufacturing and quality assurance processes. PI (Physik Instrumente), a global leader in precision motion systems, provides highly accurate hexapod 6-axis robots for loads from a few 100g to several tons.

The latest generation of PI hexapod controllers with integrated EtherCAT® interface now makes it very easy for users to integrate the parallel-kinematic robots into automation systems without the need to perform challenging coordinate transformations.
