‘MIKROLAR is a company dedicated to the design, manufacture, and application of high precision positioning systems for use in a wide variety of applications. We base our custom robots on the Hexapod system, which provides high load capacity and range of movement while maintaining a high degree of precision and repeatability.
Mikrolar’s team has developed a number of new robotic applications using proprietary licenses from Hexel Corporation. These devices are being used to eliminate errors in automated welding lines, to develop newer and better shoe designs, and to further testing in the exciting field of bio-mechanical research. All of these units were developed specifically for the end user’s particular requirements. Our aim is to provide effective solutions to difficult motion problems.
Our team consists of highly experienced mechanical, electrical, and software engineers with decades of experience in engineering robotic solutions for a variety of industries; many of those years spent specifically in designing and understanding Hexapods and actuators.
By providing services for design, fabrication, installation, application, and programming, we strive to focus on what the customer needs to achieve their goals. If your application requires an accurate, fast, and extremely stiff robot; you’ve come to the right place!’
A HEXAPOD, or Stewart Platform, is a parallel link manipulator that utilizes an assembly of six struts to provide motion and accuracy for positioning. It has six degrees of freedom (usually listed as x, y, z, pitch, roll, and yaw). If you remember your physics lessons you know that there are only six degrees of freedom available. Therefore, if you build a Hexapod, it is not only capable of moving in any possible direction and orientation, but it is also in control of all these motions.
