Design Features

  • Offers compact size & ample range of motion for simple integration into complex applications
  • Supports high payloads to 7.5 kg & resists backdriving to 100 N
  • Delivers industry-leading minimum incremental motion to 20 nm in XYZ & 0.04 arc sec in θxθyθz
  • Coordinates with other motion axes (servo, stepper, piezo & more) using our controllers
  • Provides easy, convenient pivot-point adjustment
  • Pairs with powerful controls & visualization software

Key Applications

HEX150-140HL is ideal for addressing space-constrained, multiple degree-of-freedom applications requiring fine positioning resolution, including:

  • Photonic device manipulation, alignment & packaging
  • Optics inspection & alignment
  • Optical wafer probing
  • Aerospace & satellite sensor testing
  • Synchrotron & beamline sample manipulation

Advanced Structural Design

HEX150-140HL is actuated with six high-resolution struts built with precision bearings, ball screws and drive components. Each strut is driven by a specially engineered brushless servomotor that is directly coupled to the ball screw. Unlike other hexapods that rely on brushed servomotors or stick-slip piezoelectric actuators, belts, gearheads and compliant couplings, our hexapods offer increased drive stiffness, superior minimum incremental motion, higher speeds and payload capacity, and a considerably longer device lifetime with consistent, reliable performance.

Integration Flexibility

With its compact size, HEX150-140HL offers effortless integration in even the most constricted operational environments, all while optimizing your flexibility and customization options. The platform and base can be easily modified with user-specific features or mounting patterns. HEX150-140HL features 35 mm diameter clear apertures in the platform and the base, allowing multi-directional workpiece access and providing room for routing of any additional cables and hoses you may require.

Powerful Controls and Software

HEX150-140HL is perfectly paired with our award-winning motion controllers. Built on years of experience in complex kinematic applications, our controls allow simple programming and use of the hexapod in multiple user-defined coordinate systems -- all with an intuitive interface and available real-time motion visualization. In addition to controlling the hexapod, our advanced controllers can effortlessly drive and coordinate a variety of motion axes from a unified platform, including servo stages, stepper motors, piezo nanopositioners, laser scan heads and more. Plus, our free HexGen™ sizing software gives you the ability to easily simulate the hexapod’s available travel and workspace.
