Symmetry, the specialist in precision positioning hexapods, presents HexaSym, a free simulator to check the strokes and load capacities of a hexapod. This tool is eagerly awaited by potential users as it will help them select the product that best suits their application.
The parallel structure of the hexapod brings many advantages compared to a more classic series structure: low mass, stiffness, higher load capacity thanks to its distribution over the six actuators ... but it is less obvious to know a priori all its running capacities, the six degrees of freedom being interdependent.
According to Symmetry, “with HexaSym, it becomes easy to test cumulative strokes on several axes simultaneously, while modifying the center of rotation, the orientation of the hexapod (vertical, horizontal, other) as well as the load. "
The HexaSym simulator also includes a 3D visualization which makes it possible to see the displacement of the hexapod according to the position instructions.
Using HexaSym will validate the integration of the best hexapod solution from the study phase.
