1) Hexapod parallel kinematics together with novel controllers and algorithms allow for faster coupling optimization between (fiber) optical devices, across multiple channels. Many industries can achieve significant process savings, including Silicon Photonics, LIDAR sensors, smartphone camera assemblies. 2) Hexapods replace traditional tools in precision manufacturing applications. For effective workplace safety when heavy loads are moved quickly, light curtains can be used. EtherCat® connectivity aids with integration into industrial control architectures.
