Small Hexapod 6-Axis Parallel Robot - Vacuum Compatible M-811 from PI

The vacuum compatible M-811 is a miniature six-axis parallel robotic positioning system, which is the smallest standard hexapod in PI’s product offering. Each individual actuator has a positioning resolution of 40 nm that is equal to a single axis of a traditional stack of 6 individual single-axis positioners.

Hexapod vs. Serial Kinematics Systems

There is only a single moving platform which offers higher stiffness and a large clear aperture. It is possible to perform mass operations because of the small size with far lower settling times than with conventional, stacked multi-axis systems.

The system is vacuum compatible and custom, non-magnetic hexapod positioners are also available.
