New Motion Systems Applications for 6-Axis Robotic Stages and Cartesian Linear Robots Showcased at the 2022 Robotics Summit

New live demonstrations on multi-axis precision motion systems for performance automation.

PI's booth at the 2022 Robotics Summit featured new applications for high precision 6-axis stages based on hexapod parallel kinematic robots and gantries (cartesian linear robots). Held annually in Boston, the Summit's expo offered hands on access to the latest design and development for producing robotics and intelligent robotic systems and services.

PI's high precision robotics solutions and motion systems find applications in micro-assembly, test & metrology, high speed multi-axis alignment of optics, camera lenses and panels, and laser machining. PI focuses on global growth markets such as Industrial Automation, Semiconductor Manufacturing, Silicon Photonics, Quantum Computing, High Resolution Microscopy, and Life Sciences.

PI USA - Difference between Gantry & Split-Bridge

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
