Motion Control

Application Spotlight: Hexapod Provides Motion Control for Stellar Applications

Scientific instruments, space flight simulators, and intergalactic telescopes demand out-of-this-world speed and accuracy in motion control. New Hampshire's Mikrolar Inc. delivers this performance for customers like NASA, Boeing, and university researchers worldwide, using robotic hexapods that vary from tabletop size to 20 feet tall. Their success secret is a partnership with a manufacturer of motion control systems that is uncommonly diverse, including a selection of servo systems so wide it can move anything from ounces to tons with equal precision and reliability.
