PRECISION POSITIONING HEXAPOD WITH HIGH STABILITY
JORAN hexapod is a high precision system designed to position and adjust elements with a 0.5 µrad angular resolution.
The conception of JORAN, particularly of its actuators, spherical joints and natural granite platforms, ensures great stability and guarantees the positioning quality over time.
Ceramic spherical joints can be replaced by universal joints if the angular travel range is too large or if external forces are too big.
Developed in collaboration with the European Synchrotron ESRF, it is ideal to support mirrors or vacuum chambers on synchrotrons beamlines.
Granite platforms can be replaced by steel platforms if preferred.

A HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONTROL CENTER
Controlling a parallel kinematics mechanism such as a hexapod requires fast and numerous calculations to transform the position instructions into motor current set points while permanently securing the motions.
For this, all our large hexapods come with a high-performance control rack interacting with either our Graphical User Interface (GUI) or optionally directly with your software environment through an Application Programming Interface (API).
A COMPLETE AND FLEXIBLE SOLUTION
Our racks are made with:
■ a powerful multi-axis Delta Tau industrial controller
■ drivers sized to meet the needs of each application
■ input-output modules allowing various interactions with the hexapod environment.
Our robust and flexible controller solutions can be adapted to different types of motors (DC, brushless, stepper) coupled to various encoder technologies (absolute, incremental, linear, rotary).
Our controllers are compatible with our hand-held control unit in option.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT HEXAPOD FOR YOU
Symetrie offers a free software, HexaSym, that makes it very easy for you to check the possible travels and load capacities of each large hexapod in their range. HexaSym will allow you to select the most suitable product for your application and to test a variety of possible configurations with it.
