BORA hexapod meets the most demanding criteria of the optics and nanotechnologies in terms of resolution, accuracy, stability and size.

Its dimensions allows an integration in a small invironment, for instance at the tip of a goniometer for an application on synchrotron beamline, or on an optical ground support equipment to align and calibrate space optics.

BORA hexapod can be used in any orientation: vertical, horizontal, upside down…
