This means a huge advantage in the planning phase, when frequently the exact dimensions of machines and space needed for some processes in the automatic production line can only be determined at the last moment. The legs can be freely positioned within a grid of 100 mm. The entire rear side of the beam is threaded and can be fitted with drip trays, cable ducts etc. The stroke movements can be varied with the free placements of shock absorbers in steps of 100mm. They are mounted in the bore holes on the front side.
        • 3-Axis: Type CP (Cantilever)

        • The portal gantry type CP fits a broad range of applications: Regardless of required stroke, load, accuracy or rigidity, with the FP range of modules you will find a suitable solution.

          Cantilever portal gantries type CP with rack and pinion drive have applications in extremely diverse industries such as Injection Moulding Machines, Pressure Casting Machines, Machine Tools and Machining Centres.
