BORA - Precision positioning hexapods by Symétrie

Bora

MINIATURE HEXAPOD FOR HIGH ACCURACY POSITIONING

BORA hexapod is a compact 6DOF parallel kinematics system for the positioning and adjustment of precision elements with a resolution of 0.1 µm.

BORA hexapod meets the most demanding criteria of the optics and nanotechnologies in terms of resolution, accuracy, stability, and size.
Its dimensions allow integration in a small environment, for instance at the tip of a goniometer for an application on a synchrotron beamline, or on an optical ground support equipment to align and calibrate space optics.

BORA hexapod can be used in any orientation: vertical, horizontal, upside down…
