Symetrie will demonstrate its new hexapod, Puna, which is designed to meet precision positioning applications in research or industry with optimised budgets. 

Capable of positioning up to 25kg payloads with a submicronic resolution, Puna hexapod offers travel ranges of 60mm in X and Y and up to 40° in Rz. It is 200mm tall in mid position.

Benefiting from Symetrie’s 15 years of experience in the development of high precision hexapods, Puna hexapod can meet limited budgets while offering a resolution of 0.5µm in translation and 5µrad (0.0003 °) in rotation.

To simplify the design, the motor is mounted in line and includes an incremental rotary encoder.

Puna (pronounced 'Poona', the name of a wind blowing in the Andes) hexapod operates in any direction: vertically, horizontally or in any other angle.
