New video presenting our high vacuum diffractometer, integrating a BORA and a JORAN hexapods, for the Synchrotron SOLEIL.
It was designed for the SIRIUS beamline at the Synchrotron SOLEIL in order to improve existing equipment and offer new opportunities for evolution to users.
Feel free to ask us for more information, or visit our synchrotron HV diffractometer page.
new video presenting our non-magnetic hexapod, allowing to perform experiments on ions trapped with a 2 tesla magnet.
Designed to position an 80 kg payload, this customized non-magnetic hexapod is aligning a UHV chamber in the 6 degrees of freedom in order to be collinear with the symmetry axis of the 2 teslas magnet and trap atomic ions.
It offers travel ranges of 10 mm in translation and 4° in rotation while having a very low profile: its height is only 155 mm in mid position. Its repeatability is ± 0.6 μm at the pivot point, which is 600 mm away from the hexapod.
Actually, it is a hexaglide. It is very similar to a hexapod, also known as a Stewart platform. But instead of variable length actuators, it has constant length bars linking the mobile platform to six linear motors distributed on a fixed platform.
