Newport Corporation, a global manufacturer in high precision motion and photonics solutions, is introducing the HXP-HA Series of high accuracy hexapods. With two programmable pivot points, Newport’s proprietary RightPath trajectory control and a new patent pending calibration process, the HA hexapods provide guaranteed accuracy on all linear axes opening up new precision positioning applications for hexapods that go far beyond simple adjustment or alignment tasks.
“Unlike any other hexapod on the market today, the HXP-HA Series provides detailed and guaranteed accuracy specifications backed by individual test results and sophisticated error compensation methods ”, says Beda Espinoza, Sr. Product Marketing Manager Motion at Newport. “Combined with Newport’s unique RightPath trajectory control for low runout motion, the positioning accuracy of an HA hexapod can be as good as any linear stage with short travel.”
High accuracy versions are available for the Newport HXP50, HXP100 as well as the HXP100P precision hexapod.
