Item # H-820.D2, H-820 6-Axis Hexapod Stages

Inexpensive hexapod
Six degrees of freedom, travel ranges to 100 mm / 60º

Works in any orientation

Fast response behavior

Standard-class 6-axis positioning system
Parallel-kinematic design for six degrees of freedom making it significantly more compact and stiff than serial-kinematic systems, higher dynamic range, no moved cables: Higher reliability, reduced friction.

Indirect measuring principle
Rotary encoder on motor shaft

Direct drive with brushless DC motors (BLDC)
Fields of application
Industry and research. For life science, biotechnology, automation, micromachining
