Automotive Precision Assembly: Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Machines Add High Precision To Conventional Robots

Source: PI (Physik Instrumente) LP

The need for advances robotics with high precision and alignment requirements continues to grow in the automotive industry. Many traditionally used articulated-arm robots are fast and can handle heavy loads, but they lack positioning accuracy. In the past, hexapod parallel kinematic robots were considered overkill for the automotive industry. Now, however, the situation is rapidly changing. This white paper describes the major benefits that hexapod 6-axis parallel machines have for conventional robots in automotive precision assembly lines. Download the full paper for more information.
