HepcoMotion’s in house design team is experienced in providing designers with complete linear motion solutions. If you require a gantry system, XYZ system or X Y System, Hepco has the solution for you.
XY and XYZ gantries are motion-centric systems designed for multi-axis operation; XY provides 2 directional movement, while XYZ is a 3-axis solution.
A robot can offer up to 7-axis of movement, but has limits on its reach, while a gantry system has a longer reach and is generally a lower cost solution.
Factors such as the environment, load and speed need to be considered when choosing a gantry system. Consideration also needs to be given to factors such as access (overhead gantries are more straightforward to access than robots).
