Turnkey planar surface gantry for compact machines
The compact gantry EXCM offers maximum coverage of its working space and is ideal for applications where every millimetre counts.
The compact gantry EXCM from Festo offers maximum coverage of its working space and is ideal for applications where every millimetre counts. It combines high functionality with a compact design and an attractive price/performance ratio.
The parallel kinematic drive concept ensures low moving masses. The recirculating toothed belt guides the slide within a two-dimensional area. The fixed motors are connected to the slide. At the same time, the pre-parameterised drive and controller package simplifies commissioning.
Optimum use of space
The gantry offers an optimum ratio between required installation space and working space and is ideal for very compact machines – installed without an external control cabinet directly on a worktable. The functional drive and controller package is standard on the EXCM-10 version. It is suitable, for example, for the automation of pre- and post-analytical laboratory processes. The plain-bearing guide makes the EXCM-10 very economical.
The drive and controller package is optional on the EXCM-30 version. Its main applications are in small parts assembly and handling or in electronics manufacturing and laboratory processes. Its precise and robust recirculating ball bearing guide is able to absorb large forces and torques, even at high speed.
