Item # 2050, A-351 MGS Gantry Systems with Linear Motors



Robust compact design with recirculating ball bearing guides for high load capacity.

Overhead moving XY gantry

Precision recirculating ball bearing guides

Absolute encoder

High-performance ironless linear motors

Various travel ranges. Options and customized adaptations

Flexible modular platform

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.

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