SYSTEM 3 provides two axes of motion in a vertical plane. A ballscrew driven ET Cylinder is utilized to provide high thrust in the vertical direction. ET Rod Guides, in conjunction with the dual X-axis, minimize the effects of moment and side loading, permitting higher acceleration of the payload.
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
