Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Positioning Systems / Stewart Platform 6-DoF Motion Systems

PI (Physik Instrumente) LP

PI parallel kinematics (PKM) precision positioning systems have many advantages over serial kinematics stages, such as lower inertia, improved dynamics, smaller package size and higher stiffness. In addition hexapods are more flexible than conventional 6 axis positioners.

With two decades of Hexapod design and manufacturing experience, PI electro-mechanical hexapods and piezo hexapod positioners are the most advanced multi- axis precision positioning systems in the world, providing significantly higher precision than hydraulically driven systems. They are available in many sizes, and configurations for loads from 2 kg to more than 1000 kg, and most are self locking.

In addition to classical "Stewart Platform" type hexapods, PI & PI miCos also offer alternative parallel positioners, such as the successful SpaceFAB 6DOF Motion Platform design, which allows for longer linear travel ranges with a lower profile.
