Lower-Cost Hexapod 6-Axis-Precision Positioner Enables New Applications: H-820 Hexapod Introduced by PI
Jul 22, 2013
PI (Physik Instrumente) adds a lower-cost hexapod to its large family of parallel positioning devices. Hexapods produce motion in all 6 degrees of freedom i.e. XYZ as well as pitch, yaw and roll. With a freely programmable center of rotation these devices are virtually as versatile as the human hand.
The new H-820 was developed for applications that require multi-axis motion and high flexibility but do not need precision on a nanometer or sub-micrometer level. Driven by powerful brushless motors, PI's new model caters to these needs with linear travel to 100 mm, rotary travel to 60°, load capacity of 20 kg, velocity of 20mm/sec, and resolution in the micrometer range.
The hexapod is ideal for many applications including industrial automation and manufacturing, neuroscience, bio-technology research, or for micro-manipulation, the alignment and assembly of mechanical components, micromachining, satellite testing, sensor alignment, X-ray microscopy and medical engineering.
