What is billed as the world’s smallest high-force hexapod six-axis micropositioner was recently developed by Physik Instrumente L.P., Auburn, Mass.

Dubbed the M-810, it has a load capacity of 5 kg and sits 11.8-cm high. Maximum travel range is 40 linear millimeters with 60° rotation. It can resolve distances to less than 1 micron and hit speeds of 10 mm/sec.
