This hexapod attachment is shown installed on a ram of a horizontal boring machine.

To create more efficient machining, use a hexapod to convert a conventional machine tool into machines that produce parts on a single setup compared with several operations on a conventional machine. A hexapod is an attachment that consists of six telescoping struts that pair around a fixed plate at one end. They converge at the other end to support a moving plate that supports a high speed machine spindle.
