Hexapod for ultra-precise applications

March 2, 2017
The HEX300-230HL hexapod targets medium-load, ultra-precision applications.

The HEX300-230HL hexapod from Aerotech (Pittsburgh, PA) targets medium-load, ultra-precision applications ranging from sensor testing to synchrotron sample manipulation. The hexapod, which is actuated with six high-accuracy struts built with precision preloaded bearings, ball screws, and drive components, is driven by the company's AC brushless, slotless servomotors. Its platform and base can be modified with user-specific features or mounting patterns—the platform features a 100mm-diameter clear aperture, while a 60mm-diameter clear aperture in the base allows workpiece access from the bottom. The base mounting holes adapt directly to English and metric optical tables.
