High Load Hexapd Lift and Rotary Test Platform Qualification & Metrology

POSTED 06/11/2019

For test, metrology and qualification of high-load hexapods in random orientation, PI uses this 10-ton test stand. Hexapod positioning systems can be tested in the exact orientation as in the customer's final installation. Metrology equipment such as laser interferometers and motion system are mounted on the same test platform, to avoid relative positioning errors. The video clip shows a medium load Hexapod with payload of 400kg.
