6-Axis Parallel Robotic Positioners for Alignment, Motion Simulation, and Stabilization
Hexapod parallel robots can solve precision positioning, alignment and motion simulation tasks better and more elegant than conventional serial kinematic systems. Today’s hexapods are available with sub-micrometer precision for loads from a few 100g to multiple tons and find applications in fields including aerospace, photonics alignment and automotive manufacturing. Motion Stabilization with Hexapods: Google engineers engineered a better Pixel2 camera using a hexapod to simulate typical vibrations and motion that naturally occurs in many degrees of freedom. This is one of the advantages a 6-axis parallel kinematic system has over a traditional multi-axis stack of linear and rotary stages.
