Precision-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

 

Drive variants

H-840.Gxx with DC gear motor

H-840.Dxx with powerful DC motors for higher velocity

 

Powerful digital controller, open software architecture

User-defined, stable pivot point, software-selectable. Positions commanded in Cartesian coordinates. Macro programming. Open source LabVIEW driver set. Work space simulation software. Virtual Hexapod machine software. Optional: Collision avoidance software (external obstacles).

Hexapods are by default configured and delivered as a system including a controller

  • C-887.52 compact bench-top controller for a lower system price. Digital I/O interfaces, e.g. for external triggering
  • C-887.11 19" controller, comprises the control for two additional single axes with servo motors. Options: Control of piezo axes, photometer cards for visible light or infrared light range

 

Upgrades for C-887.11 (order separately)

  • Analog interface/photometer cards for visible light (F-206.VVU) or the infrared light range (F-206.iiU)
  • F-206.NCU fast piezo nano-alignment system for alignment with nanometer precision

 

Accessories

  • C-887.MC manual control unit for Hexapods, USB, 3 m cable
  • C-887.VM1 PIVeriMove software for collision checking

 

Fields of application

Research and industry. For tool control, life sciences, micromanufacturing
