PI_Hexapods_Brochure_HexB70.jpgA brochure titled “Hexapod Six-Axis Precision Parallel Kinematics Systems” is available from PI (Physik Instrumente) LP. Downloadable from the company Web site, the 20-page document presents a variety of standard and custom hexapod positioners and robots, featuring submicron resolution and load capacities from 2 to 1000 kg. Among the standard hexapod designs are servomotor-driven systems for moving optics up to 1 m in diameter to piezo-based designs for nanometer-precision control of semiconductor wafers and masks. Specifications, diagrams and applications are provided for models such as the F-206.S HexAlign six-axis precision alignment system/manipulator. Related articles on the technology are included.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
