Simple, Sophisticated Long-travel Automation

June 13, 2023
Manufacturing and packaging operations that still depend on manual material or parts handling can benefit from a type of automation based on long-travel Cartesian robots with custom end-of-arm tooling and advanced sensing capabilities.

Cartesian robots, which are built around two or more coordinated linear positioning stages, may not be the first thing that comes to mind if you’re new to automation. Instead, there’s a natural tendency to equate robots with 6-axis, articulated-arm models. Yet in applications requiring the robot to tend multiple machines, reach long lengths or perform simple, repetitive operations, ignoring the benefits of a long-travel Cartesian system can be a costly mistake. Learn why in our white paper.
