Dual-Bridge Overhead Processing Gantry

Description

Design Features

  • High-speed linear motor based dual-bridge overhead processing gantry
  • Designed with processing throughput in mind
  • Z-theta axes on each XY bridge
  • Each bridge has access to the majority of the working area
  • Integrated safety limits and hard stops on each moving carriage to eliminate the chance of the two bridges colliding
  • All motion coordination, including “keep out zones” for each processing head, is programmed and commanded from an Aerotech motion controller
  • All cable management designed, wired, and installed by Aerotech
  • Stable granite base and custom aluminum spar risers are utilized to create the ideal offset for any overhead processing application
  • Applications include high-speed pick and place, inspection, and part manipulation
