Organizing an application design from concept to construction can be a tremendous task. Applications such as a gantry—a multi-axis structure that shares a load—require special attention in selecting and implementing components. Since most gantry systems require synchronization of motion across two axes, programming the system is also a major consideration. Together, we’ll review the requirements of a load-sharing gantry system, then size the system, select components, and program the motion using Workbench software.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • What specialized needs to consider, including alignment and load sharing
  • How to select and size products for gantry axes
  • How to program the gantry axes into the AKD2G drive
