Product Description Specifications Downloads Quote / Order

The H-840 hexapod series is universally applicable for tasks in precision positioning. Some variants are optimized for high dynamics and can for example, be used for simulating motion whereas models with gearhead support are suitable for heavier loads.

The parallel-kinematic design for six degrees of freedom makes it significantly more compact and stiffer than comparable serial kinematic systems. Their advantages over serial, i.e., stacked systems, are mainly the much better path accuracy and repeatability. In addition, the moved mass is lower and allows improved dynamics performance and is the same for all motion axes. Cable management is not a problem because cables are not moved.

Use of brushless DC motors (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.

Variants with absolute encoder

Absolute encoders supply explicit position information that enables immediate determination of the position. Therefore, no referencing is necessary when switching on and this increases efficiency and safety during operation.

PI Hexapod Simulation Tool

The simulation software simulates the limits of the workspace and load capacity of a hexapod. Therefore, even before making a purchase, you can check whether a particular hexapod model can handle the loads, forces, and torques occurring in an application. For this purpose, the simulation tool takes into account the position and motion of the hexapod as well as the pivot point and several reference coordinate systems.

Fields of application

Research and industry. For motion simulation (CIPA certified), tool inspection, life science, micromanufacturing, micromanipulation, industrial alignment systems.
