Six-axis positioning system for tumor treatment and surgery from PI

Aug. 21, 2014
The H-850KMLD hexapod system from PI (Physik Instrumente) provides 1 µm minimum incremental motion over a 100 mm travel range in XY and 0.5 µm in the Z direction.

The H-850KMLD hexapod system from PI (Physik Instrumente; Auburn, MA) provides 1 µm minimum incremental motion over a 100 mm travel range in XY and 0.5 µm in the Z direction. Repeatability in the three linear axes is ±1 µm, and ±5 µrad/9 µrad in the rotary axes. It has utility in medical tumor treatment and surgery, among other applications, and includes a C-887 hexapod multiaxis-vector controller and a software package.
