Symetrie has launched NanoPos, a nanometre resolution positioning hexapod developed for applications such as positioning in optics or nanotechnologies.
The hexapod has a small size thanks to the integration of high-quality joints and low friction mechanical parts, as well as compact piezo stages from Micronix USA.
NanoPos can position a 1kg payload in six degrees of freedom with a 10nm resolution. The device is 65mm tall.
The hexapod has closed loop control with linear optical encoders. It also comes with its controller and an ergonomic software program for customers to learn how to use it and to easily configure the rotation centre.
