PI announces M-810 6-Axis Hexapod micropositioning system
After two decades of Hexapod design and manufacturing experience, PI electro-mechanical Hexapods and piezo Hexapods are among the most advanced multiaxis precision positioning systems in the world. The new M-810 ultra-compact miniature Hexapod is no exception.
Features and Advantages of the M-810 Miniature Hexapod
Parallel Kinematics Advantages
Parallel-kinematic motion systems have a number of advantages over standard serial kinematic (stacked) positioning systems:
Smaller Motors and Encoders, Compatible with Existing Controllers
The limited space necessitated the usage of new technologies for encoders, motors and other integrated electronic components. Nevertheless, the M-810 is compatible with PIs tried and proven hexapod controllers that are supported by windows software and a library of drivers and programming examples for applications such as optical alignment etc.
PI offers Hexapods with load ranges from 2 kg to >1000 kg.
