Standard Size 6-Axis Hexapod Platform Positioners

Home   << Previous    Next >>
PI is the world leader in precision 6-DOF Hexapod / Stewart platform design. PI's core business is ultra-precision motion control. With more than 1300 employees in many countries around the world, and three decades of hexapod mechanics, controller and software design experience, PI can provide a solution for your next motion project quickly. PI recently acquired a number of motion and positioning companies and can also offer single and multi-axis motion and positioning systems with linear motors, air bearings and industrial EtherCat-based motion controllers. PI's electro-mechanical and piezoelectric Hexapod (Stewart-Gough) platforms have many advantages over hydraulic hexapods. They are smaller, offer much higher precision and most are self locking on power-off. The latest models provide absolute position encoders for added speed and security after power up. PI hexapods are available in many sizes, configurations for loads from 2kg to more than 1000kg.
