Yaskawa has introduced a gantry system to enable the simple, rapid integration of linear motors into the manufacturing process, saving time and money.

The plug-and-play all-in-one system meets all typical dynamic and precision requirements of customers in assembly, electronic printed circuit board manufacturing, image processing and industrial automation.

The company will present its cartesian gantry systems at the Motek 2009 trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany, on Stand 7.2.05, Hall 7.

Yaskawa designs and manufactures its gantry systems in Germany incorporating its own proven linear technology for ironless and iron core motors, servo amplifiers and machine controllers.

Using coordinated components from a single source is claimed to ensure high acceleration, speed and positioning accuracy values.

For the customer, this translates into faster positioning times and high productivity, according to the company.

Thanks to the system’s high efficiency, energy costs are said to be extremely low.

The system requires virtually no maintenance, which further contributes to total lifecycle cost savings.

Yaskawa can cooperate with its customers to design optimised solutions that match the target application.
