Product overview

A gantry robot consists of a manipulator mounted onto an overhead system and allows movement across a horizontal plane. Gantry robots are also called linear or cartesian robots and are typically large systems built with linear guide rails that undertake pick and place actions, and they can also be used in applications such as welding. Cartesian gantries are relatively simple to program when compared to alternative motion control solutions, and in addition, they are not limited by floor space constraints. ALIO’s cartesian gantries are  characterized by large work areas and superior positioning accuracy.

Configurable Gantries

ALIO’s Micron 2 SNH cartesian gantry has 100mm XY to 1m XY travel, and up to 3.5G acceleration (controller dependent). Standard and ULTRA precision grades have <1.5µm accuracy, and linear resolution of 5nm is standard. With an ALIO controller, the gantry is precision trigger capable, and yaw compliance to command angular alignment comes as standard.
