March 1, 2017 - Aerotech released the HEX300-230HL HexGen hexapod. The HEX300-230HL is targeted at medium-load, precision applications ranging from sensor testing to synchrotron sample manipulation.
The HEX300-230HL is actuated with six struts built with preloaded bearings, ball screws, and drive components.. The HEX300-230HL’s structural design offers the user a load capacity of up to 45 kg.
The HEX300-230HL’s platform and base can be \modified with user-specific features or mounting patterns. It features a 100 mm diameter clear aperture in the platform, while a 60 mm diameter clear aperture in the base allows workpiece access from the bottom. The base mounting holes adapt directly to English and metric optical tables.
Aerotech hexapods can be vacuum-prepared for applications such as synchrotron sample or optics manipulation, semiconductor manufacturing and inspection, or satellite sensor testing.
Driving the HEX300-230HL is Aerotech’s \ A3200 motion control software. The A3200 controller allows programming and control of the hexapod in any user-defined coordinate system.
