The PIVeriMove software from Physik Instrumente increases the operational safety of Hexapod systems.
Physik Instrumente’s (PI) parallel-kinematics Hexapod systems allow for a flexible positioning of loads in the workspace.
The simulation software developed by PI can graphically represent the Hexapod’s operating environment, and simulate its movements within that environment.
It is simple to configure any objects present: these are either defined directly within PIVeriMove starting from basic shapes such as cylinders and cuboids, or can be imported by means of CAD data with a selectable level of detail.
Based on these data the simulation software calculates the distances between the Hexapod and any obstacles, and the resulting travel ranges.
PIVeriMove also allows configurations to be stored directly on the controller. The software checks each position before the Hexapod adopts it, in order to avoid positions and trajectories that would result in a collision.
Applications involving sharply-delineated workspaces and the positioning of highly-sensitive objects can particularly benefit from PIVeriMove.
The software is designed to easily define, for example, the walls of a vacuum chamber, sensitive measurement setups on the platform or elements of a production line as objects and to add them to the simulation.
Additionally, PIVeriMove is available for all PI Hexapod systems.
