PlanarPod 6-DOF Motion Platform / Vacuum 6-Axis Robotic Parallel Positioning System: by PI miCos

POSTED 06/07/2019

SpaceFABs are precision 6-axis parallel positioners / motion platforms similar to Hexapod Stewart platforms. Vacuum compatible models available. Advantages over hexapods are lower profile and longer XY travel, as well as flexible configuration. Hexapod advantages are higher stiffness longer tip/tilt travel and higher load capacity. PI offers both designs as well as classical
