6 Axis Miniature Robot at Medical Design & Manufacturing Expo

6 Axis Miniature Robot at Medical Design & Manufacturing Expo

Anaheim, CA - Nanopositioning specialist PI (Physik Instrumente LP) has shown its latest 6-axis robot positioning system at the MD&M West show, the world's largest medical design & manufacturing event.

The miniature hexapod system provides more than 10 lbs of force and motion in all six degrees of freedom. It can be used for manufacturing and placing of parts requiring very high precision, for microscopy applications or laser and optical alignment. Catalog on 6-Axis Robots for Micropositioning

After two decades of experience with the design and production of hexapod robots, PI’s electro-mechanical / piezoelectric 6-axis positioners are among the most advanced multiaxis precision motion control systems in the world.

Features & Advantages
Operation in any orientation.
High-stiffness 6-Axis hexapod with 5 kg load capacity.
A compact size of 10 cm diameter, 11.8 cm height.
0.2 micron minimum incremental motion (40 nm resolution).
Long travel ranges to 40 mm (linear) and 60° (rotation).
Powerful controller with freely definable virtual pivot point.
High velocity of 10 mm/s.
Linear and rotary multi-axis scans.

Parallel Kinematics Advantages
Parallel-kinematic motion systems have a number of advantages over standard serial kinematic (stacked) positioning systems:

Virtual pivot point, rotation around any point, not unlike the human hand.
Only one moving platform, no accumulation of guiding and lever-arm errors.
No moving cables, for improved reliability and precision.
Smaller package size.
Increased stiffness, reduced inertia, better dynamics.

Smaller Motors & Encoders

The limited space necessitated the usage of new technologies for encoders, motors and other integrated electronic components. The M-810 is compatible with PI’s tried and proven hexapod controllers that are supported by windows software and a library of drivers and programming examples for applications such as optical alignment etc. PI also provides simulation tools for hexapod
