Gantry robots offer efficient and flexible solutions for a wide range of automation needs. Gantries can be used with a single machine or many, and can range from a few feet in length to well over a hundred, with payloads from a few ounces to one-and-a-half tons. In addition to these capabilities, gantries come in single- and multiple-axis configurations. One can easily see why a gantry robot can be configured for a variety of different tasks.
Gantries can be mounted or positioned in a variety of ways. The traditional overhead style offers considerable advantages because of the minimal floor space needed for supports, while allowing access to the equipment below. Floor or table mounts are also available, depending on the application.
