Overview

The MGS gantry system has been designed to maximize throughput for applications requiring overhead motion. This stage is ideal for 3D printing, assembly, pick-and-place, alignment, inspection, and industrial automation applications.

The MGS uses preloaded linear mechanical bearings which are designed to provide optimized stiffness and precision. Optional stainless steel guide rails can be delivered.

The gantry axis incorporates dual linear motors and dual linear encoders. Ironless linear motors provide smooth motion and no cogging or attractive forces. The linear motor and linear encoders are noncontact devices, so there is no backlash, wear, or maintenance concerns.

The A-351 is coupled with industry-leading controllers and drive modules from ACS that offer superior servo performance, advanced control algorithms to improve dynamic performance and error compensation, and a wide suite of software development tools.

Options and customized adaptations

  • Base made of granite or aluminum
  • Adjustable work height
  • Systems for reducing vibration
  • Additional drag chains
  • Performance of the linear motors
  • Liquid cooling of the linear motors

Application fields

Scanning, Digital printing, Electronics assembly and inspection, AOI (Automatic Optical Inspection), Automation.

A-351 MGS basic configuration
Mechanical XY gantry system, recirculating ball bearing guides, 3-phase linear motors, absolute linear encoder, travel range to 500 mm × 1000 mm (please specify in the request)
A-351 factory option: V-408 as Z axis
Modified V-408 linear stage with 3-phase linear motor, holding brake, and pneumatic weight force compensation, 50 mm travel range
A-351 factory option: Motor cooling
For applications with a high duty cycle and high accelerations can be equipped with liquid-cooled linear motors. Individual liquid cooling is also possible for the linear motor of the bridge axis. An external radiator is necessary.
A-351 factory option: Base materials
The base plate and the base structure of the gantry axis can be either granite or aluminum. Customized hole patterns are possible.
