Hexapod-Simulator: Which Hexapod is the Right Model for Your Application? PI’s New Software Tells You

A hexapod, also known as a Stewart Platform, offers motion in 6 degrees of freedom (XYZ, Pitch, Roll, Yaw). Different models are available to handle loads up to 2000 kg. The parallel kinematic design provides a tremendous advantage over conventional multi-axis positioners constructed from a stack of single axis stages. But what type or configuration is best for your project?

Powerful Simulation Software Aids the Decision Process

Powerful simulation software from PI (Physik Instrumente), a leader in precision motion control and nanopositioning solutions, determines if a hexapod is suitable for your specific positioning task, in terms of workspace, load, center of mass, and operating orientation. The tool helps you to find out which model you should invest in.

The flexible concept of hexapods can easily solve complex motion and alignment problems in fields including Optics, Photonics, Precision Automation, Automotive, and Medical Engineering.
