The AGS1500 series of Cartesian gantry systems is designed for ultra-precision, high-dynamic contouring, providing outstanding performance and versatility in a wide range of automation platforms. The planar design minimizes dynamic pitch errors at the work-point.
AGS1500 gantry systems can be found in production plants around the world, in applications including precision micromachining, stencil cutting, fuel cell manufacturing, solder-ball placement, printed electronics, high-speed pick-and-place, automated assembly, vision inspection, dispensing stations and high-accuracy inspection. The AGS1500 gantry system is based on the industry-leading AGS15000 gantry, and maintains many of the same leading-edge characteristics.
Aerotech's high-performance BLMC and BLM series brushless linear servomotors drive the AGS1500 gantry system to speeds of 3m/s and accelerations of 5g. Dual linear motors and encoders are included on the lower axis for the highest level of performance and precision. The rugged noncontact optical linear encoders offer resolutions to 1nm when coupled with Aerotech's controllers.
The AGS1500 design keeps the linear motors and linear encoders to the outside of the work area. This design makes the gantry less susceptible to debris-induced damage.
Design Features of the AGS1500 Gantry System Include:
Optimised design for precise contouring in a compact footprint
Velocity to 3m/s and acceleration to 5g
High power brushless linear servomotors for smooth motion
