Product Portfolio
  • MODULAR AXIS AND GANTRY SYSTEM

  • Thanks to the modularity of the components, they can easily be used as a single-axis system or combined to create multi-axis systems. The basic unit of the systems is made up of linear axes with moveable carriages to which further axes, grippers or rotation units can be attached. This provides the greatest possible degree of flexibility depending on the design required.
    This makes it possible to find the best solution for particularly heavy loads, long travel distances, or small workspaces, for example, depending on the requirements.

    The modular FLT axis and gantry system therefore provides the perfect basis for applications relating to loading and unloading machines, processing centres and parts transfer as well as transporting fixtures, tools and processing systems, etc., within the fields of production and logistics.

    • A variety of sizes means loads up to 3000 kg are covered
    • Dependent on type and load:
    • horizontal travel paths over 100 m and vertical strokes up to 3 m
    • Speed and acceleration:
    • horizontally up to 4.5 m/s – 6 m/s² and
    • vertically up to 2 m/s – 4 m/s²
    • With or without control
    • Standalone solutions or inline integration
      • LVA
        LINEAR VERTICAL AXIS

      • The linear vertical axis LVA is used as a stationary lifting device for workpieces or as an additional axis to increase flexibility in assembly and production. It allows a stroke of up to approx. 3 m and, with its aluminium and steel axes, can take a transport load of up to 1500 kg. Its components mean that the axis is not just flexible – it also enables exact positioning and the transmission of large forces.
      • LHA
        LINEAR HORIZONTAL AXIS

      • With a maximum total axis length of more than 100 m and a stroke of up to 40 m per carriage, the linear horizontal axis LHA is ideal for transporting and handling fixtures. It can be integrated into systems as an additional axis, is suitable for attaching further axes or can be used as the seventh axis for robots. It can also be mounted. Its flexibility, strength and accuracy set this axis apart. With its aluminium and steel axes, the LHA is able to take a transport load of up to 1600 kg.
      • LFA
        LINEAR FLOOR AXIS

      • The linear floor axis LFA is ideal as a seventh axis for robots or for transporting fixtures using floor positioning units. Its strength, accuracy and flexibility set it apart. This is primarily down to its stroke of up to 40 m per carriage and a possible total length of max. 100 m. Its maximum transport load of up to 6000 kg is possible due to the aluminium and steel axes. The LFA is also available in a separate drive module and transport carriage version.
      • LGR
        LINEAR GANTRY ROBOT

      • With its two axes, the linear gantry robot LGR is ideal for loading and unloading machines and fixtures, as well as handling components between different stations. The system, made up of aluminium and steel axes, can transport loads of up to 1500 kg and has a stroke of up to 40 m per carriage. The total length of the robot axis is up to 100 m.
      • AGR
        AREA GANTRY ROBOT

      • With its three axes, the area gantry robot AGR is ideal for covering large working areas, particularly in intralogistics and for loading large machines. This is primarily down to the potential span of approx. 12 m and stroke of up to 60 m. The maximum transport load of the axes is 3000 kg.
      • AGC
        AREA GANTRY CANTILEVER

      • The area gantry cantilever AGC is ideal for handling and transporting workpieces and pallets in a compact installation space. The AGC provides a stroke of up to 40 m for cross arms of up to approx. 3 m. The system, made up of aluminium and steel axes, can transport loads of up to 600 kg.
    • LINKED SYSTEMS

    • Thanks to intelligent system interlinking, FLT connects different processes and machining stages of workpieces. This means that output can be increased, quality raised, capacities adjusted flexibly and the level of automation expanded.

      When it comes to using technology to link individual production process stages, FLT utilises its product, solutions and process expertise to configure the individual requirements of the relevant applications. In the process, we combine all individual modules and system components in the most effective way possible to create a complete system.

      Here, customers benefit from a wide range of services from a company that is able to offer both individual components and turnkey systems.

      • Two or more gantries operating in sync
      • With or without control
      • Including all peripheral technology

            • We offer carefully conceived, individually designable module solutions for automation in a wide variety of industries. Transport and logistics as well as assembly and handling are the most important areas of application.

              Our modules for translation, rotation and gripping can be used as individual modules or combined in a wide variety of ways to form a host of devices and systems – from simple pick-&-place units to multi-axis robots. The modules are available either with or without electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic installation.

                • ROTATION MODULES

                • Our high-performance rotation modules for pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical applications offer a high level of quality.

                  The electrical modules are normally driven by servomotors, achieving high performance levels with high acceleration and speed and optimum positioning accuracy.

                  The pneumatic rotation modules offer a compact, integrated damping system that permits optimum end position damping to be achieved with a short cycle time in just a few steps.

                  • GRIPPERS

                  • Our comprehensive standard range of parallel and angle grippers features high product quality and precision.

                    The series feature optimum grading and include a wide range of sizes for transporting workpieces with weights of up to 440 kg.

                    For rapid tool changeover, we also offer a pivoting twin gripper with two integrated gripper modules in an angled layout, combined with a rotation module with rotary union.

                    • LINEAR MODULES

                    • We offer a range of high-performance, compact modules such as short-stroke modules and translation modules for loading and unloading machines and for use in assembly areas as well as linear axes.

                      These are driven either hydraulically and pneumatically via a cylinder with end position damping or electrically via servomotors.

                      This design ensures optimum speed and positioning accuracy.
