New Manufacturing Capabilities for Precision Hexapod Positioners added by PI

Auburn, MA | Posted on July 3rd, 2013

New High-Load Hexapod Production & Test Facility
Close to 4500 square ft are dedicated for the manufacture and test of heavy duty 6-Axis motion systems capable of moving loads of up to 5 tons with sub-micrometer precision To verify the accuracy of these high-load precision positioners, special metrology rooms are available, filled with interferometers and other test equipment.

An example of a new modular high load hexapod positioner can be seen here:

A giant lift and rotation platform is used to rotate the 6 axis positioning positioner with its load by 360 degrees to verify the performance under the exact mounting conditions of the customer's site.

PI is the leading manufacturer of micro-precision and nano-precision hexapods and parallel positioning systems in the world. For example, 50 of PI's hexapods align reflectors in the ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter Array) observatory, the world's most advanced telescope located in Chile.

Hexapod precision positioning systems are used in many cutting edge applications around the world, from optics alignment, to medical tumor treatment, from high energy physics to aerospace and semiconductor manufacturing.
