High Accuracy and Heavy Payload Best-In-Class Hexapod
ZONDA positioning 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 positioning 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 Best-In-Class hexapod can be used in any orientation: vertical, horizontal, upside down…
Optionally, ZONDA hexapod can be high vacuum (10-6 mbar) or cleanroom compatible.
Travel range : ± 200 mm / ± 20 °
Resolution : 0.1 µm
Repeatability : ± 0.25 µm / ± 1 µrad
Payload : 400 kg

A HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONTROL CENTER
Controlling a parallel kinematics mechanism such as a positioning 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 positioning 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 positioning 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.
