Product Description Specifications Downloads Quote / Order
  • Load capacity to 30 kg, self-locking
  • Travel ranges to ±27.5 mm, rotation range to ±11.5°
  • Actuator resolution to 8 nm
  • Minimum incremental motion to 0.25 µm in X, Y, and Z
  • Repeatability to ±0.1 µm / ±2 µrad
  • BLDC motors and absolute encoders

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.

Brushless DC motor (BLDC)

Brushless DC motors are particularly suitable for high rotational speeds. They can be controlled very accurately and ensure high precision. Because they dispense with sliding contacts, they run smoothly, are wear-free and therefore achieve a long lifetime.

Absolute encoder

Absolute encoders supply explicit position information that enables immediate determination of the position. This means that referencing is not required during switch-on, which increases efficiency and safety during operation.

Fields of application

Research and industry. For microassembly, biotechnology, semiconductor manufacturing, optical alignment.

Applications

Hexapods for Optical Metrology

Testing aspherical shape accuracy requires the measurement of the smallest deviations in the nanometer range and short measuring and set-up times. The solution is a new interferometer from metrology company Mahr. As part of the overall system, the hexapod positions lenses and the calibration sphere.
