In 2001 ALIO designed, built and patented the first True Nano™ precision Hexapod and Tripod robots. Over the years the ALIO Hexapod has been the standard for nanometer applications requiring a Hexapod robot. Alio’s patented parallel kinematic Tripod 3 axis and Hexapod 6 axis robotic systems promise to revolutionize the manufacturing processes and inspection of products requiring nanometer precision.
Ceramic Servo Motor Hexapod: The patented Hexapod products all come standard with forward and inverse kinematics allowing the end user to program not only the point in space but the path and velocity from point to point. This ability allows for multiple tool center points to be programmed within the same process. Payload range is from 300 gm (as shown) to 20 kg. UHV vacuum rated are also available, if needed.
Ceramic Servo Motor Tripod: The ALIO 3 axis patented Tripod with ceramic servo motors integrated with ALIO’s nano precision stages has all the advantages of a Hexapod platform from a motion and kinematic standpoint with large advantages in stiffness, work envelope, path precision and higher precision by an order of magnitude, for True Nano ™ applications. Payload ranges from 150 gm to 10 kg.
Linear servo motor tripod: This platform can out-perform Hexapod systems with Nano Precision ™ while increasing the work envelope and significantly increasing the stiffness of the structure. This makes this platform ideal for nano machining and thermal bonding applications where reactive forces are common. The ALIO product family of Linear Servo Tripods can be packaged from 3 axes to more than 6 axes while still maintaining the ALIO forward and inverse kinematic equations.
