Reference-class 6-axis positioning system
Parallel-kinematic design for six degrees of freedom making it significantly more compact and stiff than serial-kinematic systems, higher dynamic range, no moved cables: Higher reliability, reduced friction. Large clear aperture. Brushless DC motors with brakes

Rapid implementation of customer requests
The high-load Hexapod has a modular structure and uses a set of different modules for motor/drive unit and joint. The platforms can be adapted to the customer‘s application. This allows for rapid implementation of special customer requirements

Powerful digital controller, open software architecture
6D vector motion controller for Hexapods, incl. two additional servo axes. Arbitrary, stable pivot point, software-selectable. Positions commanded in Cartesian coordinates. Macro command language. Open-source LabVIEW driver and libraries. Determination of the workspace. Virtual machine for Hexapod emulation. Optional: Software for avoiding collisions in restricted workspace

Fields of application
Research and industry. For astronomy, aviation and aerospace
