PRECISION IN A SMALL DIAMETER HEXAPOD
MAUKA is a small diameter hexapod designed to position up to 5 kg payloads with a submicrometer resolution.
MAUKA hexapod offers travel ranges of 10 mm in X and Y, 20 mm in Z, and 16° in the three rotations. Its diameter is 107 mm and it is 198 mm height in mid position.
To minimize the diameter, we used a hexaglide geometry, where motors are mounted in line.
MAUKA small diameter hexapod operates in any direction: vertically, horizontally, or in any other angle. It is irreversible, even after a power failure.
Thanks to its absolute linear encoders, it is not necessary to carry out a homing command each time the controller is turned back on, the hexapod position is immediately known, without having to make any hexapod movement.
Resolution: 0.5 µm
Linear travel range: ± 10 mm
Angular travel range: ± 8°
Size in middle position: 198 mm
Maximum payload: 5 kg
- Clean room compatibility

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 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 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.
