Hexapods

Hexapods provide motion in 6 degrees of freedom in the most compact package. In combination with absolute measuring sensors, software and motion controllers that make the most complicated motion profiles easy to command, PI hexapods answer industrial requirements. All drive types can be matched to meet the conditions of the individual application.  

The broadest portfolio of standard hexapods ranges from miniature versions for sample positioning in beamline experiments, high-resolution dynamic positioners for fiber alignment, to equipment for industrial production processes, where hexapods position high loads with sub-micrometer precision.

Motion hexapods provide more dynamic motion and are designed to follow pre-defined trajectories with high precision, for example in camera test stands.
