Looking for a way to incorporate flexibility into your work space? Gantry systems will expand your horizontal and vertical reach. Also known as Cartesian coordinate robots, gantry robots work from an overhead XYZ grid. The size of a gantry system varies; they can fit into a compact square or fill an entire room.
Gantry robots are robotic travelers. They go the distance to cover the entire length and breadth of parts. Gantry systems are an ideal solution for material handling
applications because they can move items from one station to another with speed and accuracy. Their traveling abilities simplify any work space because one gantry robot can perform the work of two to three floor-mounted articulated robots.
Two more advantages of gantry systems are precision and programming. Because they work from a grid, gantry robots can be easily programmed to land at precise points.
