Hybrid Hexapod

Laser 2000 has introduced the Hybrid Hexapod from ALIO Industries. With the combination of serial and parallel kinematic axes, it is possible to achieve high precision and dynamic, as well as a flexible combination of travel ranges and dimensions. Through the use of standard XY and rotary axes, this design is also the least cost intensive solution on the market.

The controllers allow a precise forward and inverse kinematic. Also, complex operations like change of pivot point position, or change of the coordinate system is now possible.
