Mikrolar P1500 Hexapod

 

A lightweight model with varying options and designs, while still maintaining the usual rigidity and accuracy. This system has been the foundation to a variety of projects, including both simulation and industrial milling. 

 

One of the newest conventional Hexapods from Mikrolar, the P1500 is flexible for customers with particular restraints. This model has the potential for a reduced footprint, weight, or cost compared to the P2100. We can comfortably adapt its design to fit within your requirements. Whether you need a lightweight version for easy repositioning (less than 80 lb. or 36.3 kg.), you're tight on space, or need a Hexapod on a budget; the P1500 fits right in.

This model is great if you will need to operate in multiple locations for two reasons: (1) our software allows for quick set-ups and changes to the coordinate systems, and (2) the light weight of the mechanical system provides the opportunity to adapt to a variety of work environments. We've had projects that utilize tracks, a frame fitted with wheels, or even a Hexapod designed light enough to lift via a team of two. See our Jogging Simulator project, and our sections on Portability and Slide Axes for a few examples of transportation. 

All of our robots use the same core software; how you communicate with them is up to you. With the use of the same simple user interface as every other Mikrolar robot, you will find operating and programming this Hexapod to be both simple and straight-forward. Whether you wish to use a language you are already familiar with such as G-code, or you require a custom designed solution such as feedback from exterior measuring devices, Mikrolar can write a custom interface to suit your needs.
