[WATCH] Hexapods 6-Axis Systems: A Technology for Precision Motion Control & Automation

March 28, 2018
Hexapods, also known as Stewart Platforms, are based on a 6-axis (XYZ, Pitch, Yaw) actuator system placed in parallel between a top and bottom platform. Advantages of using a hexapod over a traditional multi-axis stage include lower inertia, improved dynamics, smaller package size, large load range (2kg to 1000+kg), higher stiffness, and flexibility.
