Newport’s HXP1000 Hexapod six-axis parallel kinematic positioning system can accommodate a centered load of 450 kg or a load of 200 kg in any orientation. The large hexapod is compact for its load capacity, measuring 550 mm diameter and 395 mm nominal height. Features include long travel ranges, fast speeds, high stiffness and stability, and two software-settable pivot points. The device is suited for motion-positioning tasks requiring up to six degrees of motion and flexible coordinate systems or pivot points. Applications include optics and satellite assembly and testing, wafer alignment and bonding, x-ray diffraction, materials analysis, micromachining/micro-manipulation, sensor calibration, and simulation.
