Aerotech, Inc: Linear motor gantries
AGS15000 series Cartesian gantries from Aerotech are designed for ultra-precise, high-dynamic contouring.
Brushless linear servomotors drive the AGS15000 to speeds of 3 m/s and accelerations of 5 g. Noncontact optical linear encoders offer resolutions to one nanometer when coupled with Aerotech's encoder multiplier. The linear motor is a noncontact device with no backlash, wear, or maintenance issues. Linear encoders sit outside of the work area making the gantry less susceptible to debris-induced damage. The configurable cable management system allows for integration of fiber lasers, cameras, and air lines for multiple applications. Customizable Z and theta axes allow flexible configurations.
