HIGH ACCURACY AND HEAVY PAYLOAD

ZONDA hexapod is a new high-performance 6DOF system meeting applications requiring both high precision, stability, accuracy, heavy load and large travels.

Designed to position up to 400 kg payload with a resolution of 0.1 µm only, ZONDA hexapod offers great travel with 400 mm in XY, 300 mm in Z, and 40 ° in the three rotations Rx, Ry and Rz.

ZONDA hexapod has unmatched accuracy and thermal stability characteristics thanks to the integrating Invar components with a very low CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion), linear absolute encoders integrated as a standard in the actuators and the design of particularly rigid joints.

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