IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 26, 2012 — Newport Corp. has introduced the HXP1000 Hexapod, a high-load, six-axis parallel kinematic positioning system that can accommodate a centered load of 450 kg or a load of 200 kg in any orientation.

The large hexapod is compact for its load capacity, measuring 550 mm in diameter and 395 mm at its nominal height. Key features include long travel ranges, fast speeds, high stiffness and stability, and two software-settable pivot points.

It is suitable for motion positioning tasks that require up to 6° of motion and flexible coordinate systems or pivot points. Applications include optics and satellite assembly and testing, wafer alignment and bonding, x-ray diffraction, biotechnology, surgery, materials analysis, astronomy, micromachining, micromanipulation, sensor calibration and simulation.

The actuators and the backlash-free cardan joints enhance repeatability and positioning performance. The system has no moving cables and no accumulation of motion errors, making it reliable in advanced positioning applications. Customized configurations are available.
