Finger, hand, or body protection in automated production processes
The integration of a barrier-free safety concept into the control circuit of the hexapod, e.g. of a PILZ safety light curtain, ensures finger, hand, and body protection depending on the required safety level.
Which hexapod is suitable for a specific application and how do external factors influence the limits of the workspace and load? With the hexapod simulation tool you can check even before making a decision on which model to buy if a hexapod is suitable for the positioning task at hand and if it is, which model exactly is suitable.

Parallel-kinematic hexapod robots can move and position tools, workpieces, and complex components with weights ranging from a few grams to several hundred kilograms or even several tons in any spatial orientation with high precision. The PI hexapod controller with integrated EtherCAT interface now makes it very easy for users to integrate hexapods into automation systems without it being necessary...
DXOMARK Uses a PI Hexapod to Simulate Camera Movements in Image Stabilization Testing
Taking sharp pictures despite poor lighting conditions, taking snapshots without blurring, recognizing traffic signs in driver assistance systems, or identifying dangerous situations in surveillance systems - all of this is possible today with the help of modern cameras. But how good is the still and video image quality of a camera or smartphone?
Whether classical stereo microscopy, fluorescent, widefield or laser scanning microscopy, whether SEM, FIB-SEM, TEM, AFM or correlative microscopy - positioning samples and objectives with subnanometer precision is decisive for the quality of your results with all of these techniques. This fully clickable, new “Nanopositioning for Microscopy” brochure provides a comprehensive overview of objective...
Automating processes in production, inspection, and testing requires increasingly more accuracy in the micrometer or even nanometer range. Hexapods are predestined for precision positioning in several axes. Their parallel-kinematic design allows a greater bandwidth of loads, travel ranges, and velocities. The new catalog now presents the entire product range and includes the extensive range of...
Google used a hexapod for testing the electronic video stabilization of a pixel smartphone. Using the six-axis parallel-kinematic system, Google simulates possible vibrations during video recordings, which are to be corrected reliably using algorithms. A view behind the scenes at Google.
