The F-206 Hexapod 6 Axis MicroMotion Robot is based on PI's ultra-high-resolution Hexapod technology, developed for aligning optics in astronomical telescopes in the early 90's. It provides six degrees of freedom, minimum incremental motion on the sub-micron level, for a six-axis move(!) and the unique PivotAnywhere capability. PivotAnywhere allows the user to define the center of rotation (pivot point) anywhere, inside or outside the F-206 workspace envelope, with a single software command.
Compact , Plug & Play 
The F-206 Hexapod is considerably more compact and accurate than conventional multi-axis stage stacks. Its parallel kinematics design and powerful, all-digital 6D controller has a vector based design. The constant length struts and flexures allow for higher precision than conventional cardanic joints.
Orthogonality and crosstalk issues, which can be a formidable assembly and service concern for stacked multi-axis units, do not affect parallel-kinematics systems. There are none of the servo-tuning and dynamic setup procedures necessitated by the widely varying effective loads on individual stages in a stacked assembly. The F-206 is truly a plug-and- play motion system that requires no servo adjustment or tuning. Its operation is fast and crisp, with uniform dynamics, regardless of the direction of motion. Another advantage of the F-206 design is that there are no moving cables to limit repeatability with friction and no cable management issues to be resolved when integrating the unit.
