SYSTEM 5 is an X-Z system utilizing the HZR belt driven unit for the vertical axis. The rigidity of the HZR permits higher vertical speed, greater X-axis acceleration, and larger moment loading than System 3.
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 times, and reduced costs. Utilization of these pre-engineered systems enables the user to redirect scarce engineering resources from motion system design to machine or process
