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

Learn in the whitepaper "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...
