Home > Press > New High Load Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Positioning System

Abstract:
Precision Motion specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) introduces a new 6-axis positioning system with 1000lbs load capacity.

New High Load Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Positioning System

Auburn, MA | Posted on July 16th, 2014

The new H-850KMLD hexapod system provides 1Ám minimum incremental motion over a 100mm travel range in XY and 0.5Ám in the Z direction. The repeatability in the 3 linear axes is ▒1Ám, and ▒5Árad / 9Árad in the rotary axes.

Hexapod Applications:

Precision manufacturing and automation
Astronomical telescopes
Satellite antenna alignment
Optics alignment
Medical tumor treatment and surgery
High energy physics
Aerospace
Semiconductor manufacturing
Photonics components manufacturing

All PI hexapods are delivered with a special hexapod controller, an extensive software package and are very easy to use and integrate. The dedicated C-887 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.

Loads Above 2000 lbs

For even higher loads above 2000lbs. standard H-845 and custom hexapods are available. PI recently installed a new 4500 square ft production and test facility for heavy duty 6-Axis motion systems capable of moving loads of up to 5 metric tons with sub-micrometer precision. A giant swivel and lift platform and interferometers are used to test the hexapod with its load in place under the exact mounting conditions of the customer's application.
