Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Kinematic Positioning System
A Hexapod is a parallel kinematic motion device that provides six degrees of freedom: X, Y, Z, pitch, roll, and yaw. Hexapods are well known as effective solutions to complex motion applications that demand high load capacity and accuracy in up to six independent axes. Yet, they still have the image of being complex and highly priced. Now, Newport is the first company to introduce a Hexapod that is not only affordable but extremely easy to use.
