PI electro-mechanical Hexapods and Piezo Hexapods are compact and very precise multi-axis positioning systems, providing significantly higher accuracy and resolution than hydraulically driven positioners.
The miniature Hexapods find use in many high-tech fields:
medical engineering, X-ray microscopy, photonics alignment, semiconductor test & metrology, astronomy, precision machining, aeronautics, high-energy physics, etc.
