Hexapod 6-Axis Stages: High Performance 6-DOF Precision Positioning Systems And Motion Platforms

PI - 6 Axis Stages

Hexapods, 6-axis positioning stages, are based on parallel kinematics, and often referred to as Stewart Platforms. A hexapod positioning system is based on a 6-axis actuator system arranged in parallel between a top and bottom platform.

PI's parallel kinematics (PKM) multi-axis precision positioning systems have many advantages over conventional serial kinematics stages, including lower inertia, improved dynamics, smaller package size, and higher stiffness. The user-programmable pivot point – integral to all PI high-performance hexapod multi-axis motion controllers – provides additional benefits, especially in alignment applications of lenses, optics, and fiber optic components.
