Controlling Hexapod 6-DOF Alignment Robots via EtherCAT®

A new whitepaper from PI details how easy it is for users to integrate PI Hexapods into industrial precision automation systems based on the EtherCAT® communication standard.

July 2019, Auburn, MA – Six-axis hexapod robots are becoming increasingly popular precision alignment and positioning solutions for manufacturing and quality assurance processes. PI (Physik Instrumente), a global leader in precision motion systems, provides highly accurate hexapod 6-axis robots for loads from a few 100g to several tons.

The latest generation of PI hexapod controllers with integrated EtherCAT® interface now makes it very easy for users to integrate the parallel-kinematic robots into automation systems without the need to perform challenging coordinate transformations.

Standard and Custom

PI has in-house engineered solutions with over 4 decades of experience working with customers to provide products that meet application demands, and can quickly modify existing product designs or provide a fully customized OEM part to fit the exact requirements of the application.
