Festo unveils high performance planar surface gantry

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

The Festo H-gantry EXCM is designed to enable fast and precise positioning in cramped installation conditions.

The planar surface system can approach any position within its working space. The recirculating toothed belt moves the slide within a two-dimensional area (X and Y axes) and the fixed motors are connected to the slide enabling the moving masses to remain low.

According to Festo, the ready to install EXCM allows fast positioning at speeds of up to 500mm/s and repetition accuracies of the order of ±0.05mm – making it suitable for applications in electronics production and small parts assembly.

The device can also be used in sample preparation to transport samples for identification by means of barcode scanners and to open and close containers.
