Hexapods Make Complex Motion Profiles Simple

What can you use hexapods for? A common application is the rapid and accurate alignment of two components in six degrees of freedom during an automated production process, for instance, a printed circuit board (PCB) and a lens, or a PCB and a charge-coupled device.

How an Industrial Safety Concept Can Be Combined with a Hexapod

Finger, hand, or body protection in automated production processes

The integration of a barrier-free safety concept into the control circuit of the hexapod, e.g. of a PILZ safety light curtain, ensures finger, hand, and body protection depending on the required safety level.

Choosing the Right Hexapod Model

Software Simulates Real Application Situation

Which hexapod is suitable for a specific application and how do external factors influence the limits of the workspace and load? With the hexapod simulation tool you can check even before making a decision on which model to buy if a hexapod is suitable for the positioning task at hand and if it is, which model exactly is suitable.

How can the advantages of hexapods be easily used in automation?

Learn in the white paper "Controlling hexapods via EtherCAT®" how integration into the process environment works

Parallel-kinematic hexapod robots can move and position tools, workpieces, and complex components with weights ranging from a few grams to several hundred kilograms or even several tons in any spatial orientation with high precision. The PI hexapod controller with integrated EtherCAT interface now makes it very easy for users to integrate hexapods into automation systems without it being necessary...

How is the Still or Video Image Quality of Cameras Reliably Measured and Evaluated?

DXOMARK uses a PI hexapod to simulate camera movements in image stabilization testing

Taking sharp pictures despite poor lighting conditions, taking snapshots without blurring, recognizing traffic signs in driver assistance systems, or identifying dangerous situations in surveillance systems - all of this is possible today with the help of modern cameras. But how good is the still and video image quality of a camera or smartphone?

New Hexapod Catalogue

High-Precision Positioning in six Axes

Automating processes in production, inspection, and testing requires increasingly more accuracy in the micrometer or even nanometer range. Hexapods are predestined for precision positioning in several axes. Their parallel-kinematic design allows a greater bandwidth of loads, travel ranges, and velocities. The new catalog now presents the entire product range and includes the extensive range of...
