The P3000 Hexapod features actuators with a longer stroke in comparison to our typical Hexapod systems. This design has been used for water jet cutting, industrial machining, and other applications
that require an increased working volume.
Based on the P-Series concept, the P3000 Hexapod system is larger than the P1000, P1500, and P2100 models. Utilizing this extended range of motion, this Hexapod can easily be applied to applications that require a larger working envelope.
Our first application for this product was the "Hex-A-Jet," a revolutionary water jet cutting system. By utilizing the 6-degree-of-freedom characteristics offered by a parallel mechanism, the Hex-A-Jet can greatly increase its accuracy by compensating for the natural taper of the water jet nozzle. Along with increasing the accuracy of a normal system, the P3000 will also allow for true 5-axis cutting. This opens the door for a variety of new applications of water jet cutting technology.
This initial job has led to similar projects recently. Visit our Water Jet Cutting and PPE Vest Trimming pages to find recent pictures, videos, and information on how we have improved upon the original.
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.
