Hexapod Systems Overview: 6DOF Motion Platforms, 6-Axis Positioning, Multi-Axis Automation

POSTED 06/07/2019

A major differentiator from conventional multi-axis positioning systems is the Hexapod's randomized, software-programmable pivot point. Hexapod systems come in all sizes and shapes, for nano-meter precision motion of small loads to sub-micron precision handling units for equipment with several tons. Different drives are optimized for slow motion and self-locking position hold on power off or highyl dynamic motion (voice-coil direct drives)
