A wide range of the most advanced hexapods to help you positioning a payload of a few grams to several tons with the best guarantees of stiffness and accuracy
HEXAPODS FOR SYNCHROTRONS
AN APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY
The precision positioning hexapods of SYMETRIE are particularly adapted for the specific needs of synchrotrons.
► Precision positioning of miscellaneous components :
– Mirrors (including KB mirrors)
– Vacuum chambers
► High level of hexapod customization
Thanks to our strong technical skills and competences in metrology, our hexapods have several advantages :
► High resolution (MIM: minimum incremental motion)
► High stability
► High stiffness: it is possible to use the hexapod in any orientation (horizontal, vertical, upside down…) thanks to its very stiff design.
For nearly 15 years, SYMETRIE has improved its control software and has added features answering customers needs, such as :
► Virtual pivot point configuration
► Use of several coordinate systems (expression of the hexapod motions according to the machine, the sample…)
► Definition of the hexapod workspace
► Safety management
► Hexapod control software easily integrable into a supervision environment such as EPICS, SPEC or TANGO (partly developed by SOLEIL synchrotron).
