Gantry Systems: Working Outside the Envelope
September 21st, 2010 by macrondynamics.

The irregular work envelopes of traditional jointed articulating arms may require redesign of existing workspaces. 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 for reasons beyond the scope of this article here 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.
