  1. PI Uses Hexapods And Drones For New Industrial And Research Applications For Motion Simulation And Compensation
    6/24/2016

    Hexapods are 6 DOF motion systems that derive 6-axis movement from actuators placed in parallel between a top and bottom platform. Available in a variety of sizes with bases ranging from 100mm to 1m, different stiffness configurations, and supportive of loads from 2 kg to 1,000+ kg, PI hexapods share two common traits – precision and versatility– as seen in a new test of a drone-mounted camera on PI’s H-840 hexapod as it goes thru a series of motions.

    4/29/2016

    PI (Physik Instrumente) recently introduced the H-900KSCO hexapod, designed with dynamic motion in XYZ, pitch roll, and yaw. 6-axis parallel kinematics motion is perfected by PI hexapods delivering nanopositioning precision, high speed, and stability necessary to meet today’s demanding motion control applications.

  6. Crossed Roller Stages Offer High Performance In A Low Profile Package
    4/20/2016

    Siskiyou offers a new series of crossed roller bearing linear stages that are the thinnest currently available on the market.  The 50.5cr stages are the ideal choice for space or weight constrained applications which still require the high stability, precise movement and relatively high load capacity characteristic of crossed roller bearings.  In addition, these stages feature a non-influencing foil lock mechanism; this is a screw that tightens down to clamp the stage in a fixed position, without changing its existing position.
