Fastest Way to Program a 6DOF Hexapod 6-Axis Motion Platform: Software, Mechanics, Controller
PI (Physik Instrumente) LP Posted 06/06/2019
The video shows PI's expertise in hexapod 6DOF motion platform design and the ease of operation for the user: mechanics, controller and sofware tools were optimized over 25 years. Hexapod positioners are often referred to as Stewart Platforms. A hexapod is based on a 6-axis (XYZ, Pitch, Roll, Yaw) actuator system arranged in parallel between a top and bottom platform. PI parallel kinematics (PKM) precision positioning systems have many advantages over serial kinematics stages.
