Applications of H-900KSCO Hexapod
Hexapod applications include motion simulation (profiles compatible to ISO 20672, ISO 8728, and ISO 16328), industrial production, precision machining, automotive industry, stabilization of motion on moving vehicles and vessels.
Compact & Stiff, No Moving Cables
The new compact hexapod provides linear travel ranges up to 200mm and rotation to 66 degrees. It is driven by brushless servo-motors and combines high load capacity (130 lbs) with fast response and high linear speeds up to 80mm/sec and angular speed of 30°/sec. The parallel kinematics design eliminates the need for moving cables and results in a very stiff and compact positioning solution, compared to conventional multi-axis designs.
