SIROCCO - Motion hexapods by Symétrie

Sirocco hexapod


SIROCCO hexapod makes it possible to reproduce movements with a load of up to 2 tonnes.

As a reminder, a hexapod is a platform with a parallel structure that can reproduce movements in 6 degrees of freedom to test and calibrate systems, or to simulate dynamic situations.

This hexapod can be used to study the movements of liquids, set in motion models or simulate a vehicle.

This solution can integrate a measurement system with 6 degrees of freedom dissociated from the movement generator making it possible to control the position of the movable table in real time.
