    thanks for the info guys. It looks like things from China may get a bit more expensive from now on. Lucky are those who already have their toys built before this week. If no one in the forum has tried this platform before then I think I will let it passes. I just don't want to be the first one to try something this complex and costly from China. If something goes wrong then I wouldn't know where to get support.

    Has anyone gone ahead with these yet?

    What motion controller will work with them?

    Hi, sorry I never received any messages from you... But yes it's been crazy busy the last few months really.

    From my experience, the actuator speeds can be misleading. I've gotten response time down to around 10ms now, which is really responsive. Some actuators might advertise high speed, but try and find out what the response time is as well, in the video above that certainly isn't 960mm/s...

    For 6 axis we can do a full motion ballscrew kit (Cabinet with all electronics, motion controller with an ethernet interface to simtools , simtools license, 900W motors and actuators for $7000), the ballscrew coupling I use ensure a high mechanical bandwidth without any flex, allowing for some more aggressive PID tuning.

    Did you ever go through with this? And are there any pics of this setup?

    Hi. Can you post a link to a picture gallery of this system? And if possible a vid?
