PI: High Load Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Positioning System

The H-850KMLD hexapod system handles loads to 500 kg (1000+ pounds) and provides 1 µm minimum incremental motion over a 100 mm travel range in XY and 0.5 µm in the Z direction.

The repeatability in the 3 linear axes is ±1 µm, and ±5 µrad/9 µrad in the rotary axes. The maximum tilt and rotation angle is ±30°. An absolute encoder option is also available. The encoder detects the actual position of the axes after power up, eliminating the need for reference moves. This is useful in confined spaces, or when the reference position cannot be reached due to obstacles in the path. The unit can be mounted in any orientation: for horizontal operation it can handle loads up to 1/2 metric ton. All units are delivered with a special hexapod controller and an extensive software package and are easy to use and integrate. The hexapod multiaxis-vector controller is commanded directly in Cartesian coordinates. The user can specify a random pivot point in space with a single software command, a feature that is critical in automated optical and mechanical alignment applications. LabVIEW and text-based programming languages under Microsoft Windows or Linux are supported by libraries and program examples.
