AQUILON - Motion hexapods by Symétrie

Aquilon

A POWERFUL HEXAPOD

AQUILON hexapod is the most powerful hexapod of our range. It provides motion for a 6 ton-payload in the 6 degrees of freedom.

Versions with a higher payload capacity can be realized if needed.

AQUILON is mostly used for swell simulation, sloshing and defense (turret tests) applications.
