Servo Gantry Solutions

Bosch Rexroth now offers a complete and scalable gantry solution for handling applications. IndraMotion for Handling includes all the necessary hardware and software components with predefined motion function blocks to run pick-and-place and loading/unloading machinery. Powered by the IndraControl L40 Motion Logic controller, Cartesian gantries with up to three linear axes (X,Y, Z) and three rotary axes (A, B, C) or motion can be precisely controlled.

Configuration of the system is siad to be quick and easy. The integrated, prewritten IEC 61131 based motion function blocks require only a few basic parameters to be set before the system is up and running. Points are defined and "taught in" with robotic programming language using the IndraControl VEH 30 mobile WinCE HMI. The control calculates the optimum coordinated moves between the points.
