Traditional Split-Bridge Gantry Subsystem

Description

Design Features

  • Split-bridge arrangement is ideal for large payloads, minimizing the moving mass that any one axis must carry and accelerate
  • Split-bridge arrangement reduces the offset between motion components and the customer’s work point which increases the system’s precision
  • Shown are two-axes of motion using mechanical-bearing stages and high-force linear motor drives, but additional axes can be added easily
  • Modular design provides configurable lengths of travel depending on customer needs
  • Fully integrated and aligned motion axes on top of a rigid granite structure
  • Integrated cable management system with room for customer process cables and hoses
  • Steel machine base offers several locations for 19” rack-mounted electronic chassis
  • This type of subsystem is suitable for many applications including but not limited to part inspection, assembly, laser processing, and an array of others
