Advantages & applications of Cartesian Gantry robots

Share This Post

Since 1987, Isotech has been designing and engineering advanced automation solutions.  Isotech can be a single source automation or mechanical motion supplier or work with systems integrators.

Isotech specializes in engineering multi-axis motion systems, gantries, and Cartesian robots built to customer specifications.

SCARA and articulating arm robots might be the most recognizable form of robot on the market today, but look to gantry robots for getting the big jobs done in the least amount of space.  Gantry robots, also called Cartesian robots, are almost ubiquitous with automation but still are not quick to be regarded as serious robots. Due to their simple design, low cost and scalability and the myriad of motor and control software solutions, this is changing.

Cartesian Gantry Robot Advantages:

•             3+ axis of movement of almost any length

•             Scalable

•             Gearbox and motor can be sized according to range of motion and speeds

•             Suitable for light to heavy / hanging loads

•             Flexible and efficient due to linear axes scalability

•             Inexpensive
