  • Offer Profile
  • Smart design for optimum production flow

    Gantry robots are typically mounted over the working area and ideal for precise picking and placement of heavy payloads or part loading and unloading.

    Our design includes sophisticated interpolating motion systems that enables almost limitless options for any combination of high speeds, long strokes, heavy payloads, and high positioning accuracy.

    Special requirements for harsh environments or low noise are easily incorporated.

        • ROBOT GANTRY – Smart design for optimum production flow

        • Can handle items weighing up to hundreds of kilos at high speed, good accuracy, and repeatability. Robot Gantries can be delivered with up to 3 motion axis, and for maximum capacity in tandem design.

          The robot can be supplied with a specially designed gripper or with a standard flange for installation of your own gripper. The Gantry robot can be delivered as a standalone unit or as an integral part of a complete material handling system.

          The gantry robot handling unit has a compact footprint by using a modular frame design enabling 1 to +20 locations. The smooth robot handling of your products eliminates the risk of damages and flexibility for stacking/handling various size products.

          When customer demand is rising, the product handling often becomes a bottleneck. Gantry robots can take your production capacity and flexibility to the next level.

          Gantry benefits

          • Increase speed of material handling/ palletizing improves productivity
          • Can handle heavy-weight items and transfer them at lifting height
          • Can handle variations in products and proliferation
          • Improve quality and consistency
          • Increase safety by reduced operator handling and eliminate the use of overhead crane and forklifts
          • System reduces risk for employees’ subject to repeatable movement

          • Allows for 24 hour operation with minimum staff and 365 days per year due to the robust/reliable design
    • GANTRY 2 AXIS

          • GANTRY 2 AXIS

          • SPECIFICATIONS

            • Payload from 30 – 800 kg (higher on demand)
            • Tailormade to customer specifications
            • Speed X axis 2,5 m/s
            • Speed Z axis 1,5 m/s
            • Repeatability +/- 1 mm
            • Individual gripper design

            A two axis gantry robot is typical used where high capacity/speed of the picking and placing system.

            The 2 axis moves along 2 different axis: the X-axis (lengthwise movement) and the Z-axis (up and down movement).

            Our design uses two horizontal linear guides in the x-axis supported on a robust steel frame, where the gantry carriage moves smoothly in between on the linear guides.

            The vertical stroke for the gripper is done by the gantry carriage and the vertical “slider” is also using guides.

            Because of the double beams in the X-axis, the gripper working payloads are resolved as forces on the X axes.

            This significantly increases the system’s stiffness and allows long stroke lengths and high speeds.

              GANTRY ROBOT 3 AXIS

              A three axis gantry robot is typically used where there is a variation in the product type handled by size, type, color etc. and a larger number of loading stations are required.

              The three axis moves along 3 different axis: the X-axis (lengthwise movement), the Y-axis (across movement) and the Z-axis (up and down movement).

              The robot has a pickup position and several loading positions.

              OUR GANTRY ROBOT DESIGN

              Our design use two horizontal linear guides in the x-axis supported on a robust steel frame, where the gantry carriage moves smoothly in between the linear guides.

              The “slider” moves across the gantry carriage also in guides.

              The vertical stroke for the gripper is done by the gantry carriage.

              The vertical “slider” is also using guides. Because of the double beams in the X-axis, the gripper working payloads are resolved as forces on the X axes.

              This significantly increases the system’s stiffness and allows long stroke lengths and high speeds.

                GANTRY ROBOT 2 AXIS DESIGN

                A 2-axis design with double heads consists of two gantry robots that share a common frame on the “X” axis.

                The two robots are in constant communication with each other to prevent collision.

                The robot has two pickup positions and a number of loading positions.

                With two gantry carriages, a very large loading area can be covered. If one of the heads is parked for service, the other head can use both pickup positions as well as all loading positions.

                The double head configuration will double the capacity of the gantry robot.
          • APPLICATIONS

                • Automatic sleeve handling and storage system

                • Handling of sleeves for flexographic printing machines

                  CH System has just designed, and factory tested a complete new automatic sleeve handling and storage system.

                  As the variation is quite large in the flexible packaging and lidding materials for food, pharmaceutical and tobacco applications, many different sleeves are used in the production.

                  Today are sleeves often manual handled, stored across the production facilities with no real marking and logistic registering.

                  The manual handling of sleeves in the past caused several repetitive work movements for the operator’s and each sleeve represent a large investment both in cost and manhours, so an automatic storage and handling system was the solution for the future.

                  The new automatic system can store up to 1500 individual sleeves, each with a unique number and floating storage location.

                  The sleeves are stored vertically and vary in length, diameter and weight.  The heart of the new system is a 3-axis gantry robot located above the physical sleeve storage area of more than 100 m2.

                  Utmost care is the key word for ensuring safe storage of the sleeves, which goes hand in hand with our gantry robot design with precision, repeatability and smooth handling.

                  The robot gripper is specially designed for the application both lifting on the upper part of the sleeve and supporting at the bottom of the sleeve.

                  Managing the project

                  Beside the gantry robot the project also included trolleys and a “washing machine” for the sleeves. The complete project with mechanical & electrical engineering and software programming is handled in-house at CH System. The whole system is factory tested in our workshop before site installation and handover.
