Non-magnetic hexapod

Project background

The School of Physics at the University of Sydney is one of the leading physics departments in Australia.

The research undertaken at the Quantum Control Laboratory is focused on the development of quantum control and metrology techniques with an emphasis on quantum physics and the engineering of new quantum-enabled technologies from quantum computation to quantum sensing.

Their research uses small collections of trapped atomic ions as model quantum coherent systems.


The Quantum Control Laboratory at the University of Sydney wants a non-magnetic hexapod to position an 80 kg vacuum chamber in order to make ion trapping experiments in a 2 Tesla magnet.

Project specifications

80 kg payload (self-locking)
Ultrasonic non-magnetic motors
Absolute linear encoders
Ultra-flat “hexaglide” design
