M O T I O N C O N T R O L A Hexapod, also known a Stewart platform, is a parallel kinematic motion device that provides six degrees of freedom: X, Y, Z, pitch, roll, and yaw. Hexapods are well known as effective solutions to complex motion applications that demand high load capacity and accuracy in up to six independent axes. Yet, they still have the image of being complex and highly priced. Now, Newport is the first company to introduce a Hexapod that is not only affordable but extremely easy to use. The HXP100-MECA Hexapod is driven by six enhanced versions of our industry-proven, high performance DC servo motor driven LTA actuators. The quality of the actuators has obviously had a strong impact on the overall motion performance of a Hexapod, but of almost equal importance are the joints with which the actuators are attached to the base and the moving top plate. Embracing this challenge, our engineers came up with a unique design of special anti-friction coated spherical joints that are not only simple, but also provide significantly higher rigidity than ordinary universal joints. The result is the HXP100-MECA Hexapod that provides more than five-times higher rigidity and twice the load capacity of other hexapods of similar size.
