The Deltalab Six Axis Platform (Stewart Table) EX800 is a multi-technology system with which investigations can be made into the behaviour of complex mechanisms such as are used, for example, in flight and motor vehicle simulators, machine tools, cine camera dynamic mounts, robots or large astronomical telescopes.

Teaching objectives

- Study of the components and the assembly of a dynamic linkage.
- System analysis, modelling and control.
- Study of the behaviour of:
- mechanical systems: geometry, kinematics, statics and dynamics, structures ;
- control: position servos, accuracy, speed, stability, feedback.
Use of the software allows the following to be investigated :
- Simulation of various system architectures.
- Control systems for outputting signals to the actuators in order to reach a specific position or to follow a specific path.
- Presentation of data in graphical form.
- Monitoring of laboratory experiments.
