Hexapods

The highest guaranteed accuracy available.

Our hexapods offer the highest positioning system accuracy – guaranteed with published specifications and performance plots.

Choose Aerotech hexapods when you need top performance and sub-micrometer precision.

Our ultra-precise hexapod positioners, also known as Stewart platforms, deliver industry-leading accuracy and repeatability in six degrees of freedom. Designed for high load capacities, large travel range and high speeds, they’re ideal for applications including photonic device manipulation and alignment systems, x-ray diffraction, synchrotron and beamline sample manipulation, aerospace and satellite sensor testing, and more. 

Aerotech hexapod platforms are simple to control, too, thanks to our powerful, intuitive programming interfaces – so you don’t have to worry about any complex coding.

Simple to Program and Control

Built on years of experience in complex parallel-kinematic applications, our controls enable simple programming and use of the hexapod in multiple user-defined coordinate systems. 

User-friendly features like an intuitive interface and real-time motion simulation and visualization help to minimize implementation time. And because one controller manages all types of axes through a unified motion platform, our hexapods integrate seamlessly with other Aerotech motion products.

Turn your precision and automation challenges into process success.
