(PresseBox) - How can the advantages of hexapods be easily used in automation processes? A new whitepaper from PI (Physik Instrumente) explains how the integration of the hexapod controller with an EtherCATwww.pi.ws/hexapods/whitepaper/ethercat

Manufacturing and quality assurance processes in electronics production, mechanical engineering, and the automotive industry increasingly require multi-axis positioning systems. At the same time, the requirements for accuracy are also increasing. Because of their design, parallel-kinematic hexapod robots can move and position tools, workpieces, and complex components with weights ranging from a few grams to several hundred kilograms or even several tons in any spatial orientation with high precision ? regardless of the assembly orientation.

Complex Kinematic Easily Integrated: Multi-Axis Drive with Fieldbus Connection

In a parallel-kinematic system, the motor axes do not correspond to the Cartesian axes. Therefore, a computation-intensive coordinate transformation is necessary for each new position. The digital hexapod controller carries out the computation and, thanks to the integrated EtherCAT

By using standardized real-time Ethernet protocols and moving the transformation calculations to the hexapod controller, the user is not dependent on a specific control manufacturer.

This new whitepaper explains

how the integration works,

how Work and Tool coordinate systems can be used, and

how the range of motion of the hexapod can optimally be used.
