Gantries and travel axes

Gantries and travel axes

Gantries and travel axes are durable, maintenance-free and robust systems, suitable for sustained use in three-shift operation. In addition, the motion sequences can be freely programmed using a control concept.

Gantries and travel axes – concept examples

Linear and surface gantries, as well as travel axes, enable the loading, unloading and stacking of components and assemblies.

A three-axis gantry with a rotary/pivoting gripper stacks battery cases with a transport weight of 10 kilograms within the travel ranges of 6,500 (x), 1,200 (y) and 2,000 (z) millimetres. All of the related motion sequences are freely programmable.
