The AGS1000 is based on the industry leading AGS10000 gantry and maintains many of the same leading-edge characteristics.

Linear Motor/Linear Encoder

Aerotech's high-performance BLMC series brushless linear servomotors drive the AGS1000 to speeds of 2 m/s and accelerations of 2 g. Feedback is from a rugged noncontact optical linear encoder. Optimized to account for thermal expansion, the design ensures high accuracy under all operating conditions.

Rugged Design

Because the linear motor is a noncontact device, there is no backlash, wear or maintenance. The bearings are preloaded linear motion guides with wiper seals and grease fittings and are mounted to provide optimized stiffness and load distribution. Standard lubrication is cleanroom compatible.

Cable Management System

Extensive R&D has resulted in an optimized cable management system (CMS) that has been field proven to be the industry's most reliable design. Large bend radii and high-flex cables ensure that the AGS1000 provides millions of cycles of maintenance-free operation. In the unlikely event of a component failure, a modular design ensures that part replacement is fast and easy.

All customer cabling and pneumatics can be routed through the system e-chain. Connectors are provided at the workpiece and at the opposite end of the e-chain, greatly simplifying final machine integration.

Turnkey Operation

Aerotech's years of experience manufacturing precision positioning and control systems can be leveraged by acquiring a turnkey system. Typical options include Z-theta mechanisms, risers to accommodate automated parts handling equipment and machine bases that are designed to accommodate the entire electronics subsystem.

Aerotech manufactures a wide range of high-performance amplifiers and advanced motion controllers that are optimized for high-performance automation applications.
