Aerotech, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, introduces the HEX500-350HL high-load, precision hexapod, which offers a significant advance in six-degree-of-freedom positioning performance. With its high-load capacity, large travels, high speeds, and sub-micrometer precision, the HEX500-350HL is the only hexapod on the market today that provides guaranteed positioning accuracy specifications.

The HEX500-350HL is actuated with six high-accuracy struts that are built with precision preloaded bearings, ball screws, and drive components. Unlike competitive hexapods driven by DC brushed servomotors, the HEX500-350HL is driven by AC brushless, slotless servomotors that maximize device lifetime and performance. The servomotors are directly coupled to the actuator ball-screw enabling increased drive stiffness, higher positioning accuracy, and better minimum incremental motion compared to designs that use belts or compliant couplings.

The platform and base can be easily modified with user-specific features or mounting patterns. The hexapod is designed with a 150 mm diameter clear aperture in both the platform and base to allow for workpiece access from the bottom. The base is designed with mounting holes to adapt directly to English or metric optical tables.

The HEX500-350HL is ideal for applications in x-ray diffraction, sensor testing, and high-force device manipulation.
