Fast Hexapod For Motion Simulation

(PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, ) The new H-900KSCO Hexapod from PI (Physik Instrumente) has a rotation range of up to 66° and achieves velocities of 520 mrad/s.

It is suitable for use in tool machines, in the automotive industry or shipbuilding, and realizes motion profiles according to ISO 20672, ISO 8728, and ISO 16328. It can for example, move a load of 30 kilograms around 25 degrees in six seconds.

The H-900KSCO also offers travel ranges up to 200 mm in the XY direction and to 170 mm in the Z direction. The minimum incremental motion on all linear axes is 5 µm.

The powerful C-887 digital controller takes control of the six Hexapod axes and two additional motorized single axes. It features vector control, a stable pivot point freely selectable in space and LabVIEW support. Position values can be entered simply as Cartesian coordinates.

Optional software for avoiding collisions in restricted workspace is also available.
