Climbing up to nearly 13ft (4m) at it's maximum height, this giant among the P-Series line is Mikrolar's largest system to date. Despite its massive footprint and weight, the P8000 maintains the rigidity and repeatability of our other Hexapod models. Along with everything else on this system, the working envelope has been increased greatly; perfect for large scale operations.
Our first application of this model was for development of NASA's satellite refueling program. It enabled them to lift a test satellite and accurately simulate a wide range of motion while developing their robotic arm for the refueling process. The P8000 would simulate micro gravity conditions and the effects of applied forces (learn more).
All of our robots use the same core software; how you communicate with them is up to you. 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.
