Overview

The PIglide MGS hybrid gantry stage has been designed to maximize throughput for applications requiring overhead motion. This stage is ideal for 3D printing, assembly, pick-and-place, alignment, inspection, and industrial automation applications.

The MGS uses preloaded linear mechanical bearings which are designed to provide optimized stiffness and precision. Optional stainless steel rails can be included.

The gantry axis incorporates dual linear motors and dual linear encoders. Ironless linear motors provide smooth motion and no cogging or attractive forces. The linear motor and linear and linear encoders are noncontact devices, so there is no backlash, wear or maintenance concerns.

The MGS is coupled with industry-leading ACS controls and drives that offer superior servo performance, advanced control algorithms to improve dynamic performance and error compensation, and a wide suite of software development tools.

Options and customized adaptations

  • Base made of granite or aluminum
  • Adjustable work height
  • Systems for reducing vibration
  • Additional drag chains
  • Performance of the linear motors
  • Liquid cooling of the linear motors

Application fields

Scanning, Digital printing, Electronics assembly and inspection, AOI (Automatic Optical Inspection), Automation.

Factory option: L-511 as Z axis

Modified L-511 linear stage with synchronous servo motor and holding brake, 50 to 150 mm travel range

Factory option: V-408 as Z axis

Modified V-408 with 3-phase linear motor, holding brake, and pneumatic weight force compensation, 50 mm travel range

Factory option: Additional drag chains

The A-351 can be equipped with addition drag chains to accommodate additional cables and hoses of the customer's setup.

Factory option: Motor cooling

For applications with a high duty cycle and high accelerations can be equipped with liquid-cooled linear motors. Individual liquid cooling is also possible for the linear motor of the bridge axis. An external radiator is necessary.

Factory option: Base materials

The base plate and the base structure of the gantry axis can be either granite or aluminum. Customized hole patterns are possible.
