Hexapods

A hexapod is a parallel kinematic motion device that provides six degrees of freedom: X, Y, Z, pitch, roll, and yaw. Hexapods are creative and effective solutions to complex motion applications that require high load capacity and accuracy in up to six independent axes. Our hexapods are driven by six industry proven, high performance actuators that leverage over 55 years of Newport expertise in actuators. Of equal importance are the 12 joints connecting the actuators to both the base plate and the moving top plate. Our engineers found innovative joint designs that provide significantly higher rigidity than ordinary universal joints. The result is a hexapod that is more rigid with a higher load capacity compared to other, similarly-sized hexapods. Newport hexapods are high performance motion devices, very affordable and extremely easy to use. To test out all hexapods in simulation mode get access to our free Hexaviz Simulation Software.
