SYSTEM 2 utilizes two linear modules in both axes (X & Y). The second linear module of the Y-axis is an idler unit which increases load capacity (normal and moment) and permits longer travel. The addition of this unit doubles the load capacity over System One. Traction force can be improved by linking the second axis (Y) module to the first with a common drive shaft. The link shaft doubles the potential acceleration of the system. This system is intended for moderate to heavy loads.
Gantry Robots offer significant advantages over articulated arm robots for high a speed automation:
larger work envelopes (not restricted by arm length)
overhead mechanics (“free up” floorspace)
better suited for multiple machines and conveyor lines
better handling of large or awkward payloads
Parker’s seven standard system configurations are designed to satisfy the vast majority of gantry robot applications. Standardizing on these configurations, has simplified sizing and selection, shortened lead t
