The AGS1000 series of Cartesian gantry systems puts Aerotech's core technologies and extensive manufacturing capability to work for you, providing outstanding performance and versatility in a wide range of automation platforms.
AGS1000 systems are designed for applications including high-speed pick-and-place, automated assembly, vision inspection, dispensing stations and high-accuracy inspection. The AGS1000 is based on the industry leading AGS10000 gantry, and maintains many of the same leading-edge characteristics.
Aerotech's high-performance BLMC series brushless linear servomotors drive the AGS1000 gantry system to speeds of 2m/s and accelerations of 2g. Feedback is from a rugged noncontact optical linear encoder. Resolution options range from 10nm to 1.0µm. Optimized to account for thermal expansion, the design ensures high accuracy under all operating conditions.
Because the linear motor is a noncontact device, there is no backlash, wear or maintenance. The bearings are preloaded linear motion guides with wiper seals and grease fittings and are mounted to provide optimized stiffness and load distribution. Standard lubrication is cleanroom compatible.
Design Features of the AGS1000 Gantry System include:
Linear brushless servomotors for superior performance and longevity
Customizable Z and theta axes for increased flexibility
Optional machine base and risers
Optional electroless nickel for ESD protection and medical applications
Compact design reduces overall machine size
Ideal for die bonding, wire bonding, WLP and DNA profiling
