Modern portal systems are engineered for highest precision and highly dynamic contouring.. The systems are used for processing flat sheet metal parts, in automated assembly systems or for laser cutting of templates. Modern laser cutting gantries for demanding machining tasks achieve process speeds of up to 300 m/min and convince with high positioning and repeat accuracy with less than 1 μm tolerance.
In the gantry drive units, rack and pinion drive systems – consisting of planetary gear, pinion and toothed rack – ensure the dynamic and positionally accurate motion sequence. The technically and economically sophisticated linear systems are used for positioning both the X-axes and the Y-axes. The key element of the drive system is a high-precision planetary gear of the GSD series from Framo Morat. The gear unit, designed for high radial and axial forces, impresses with its compact design. The robotic output flange ensures maximum torsional stiffness.
Single source solutions – individually configured for you.
When selecting the appropriate rack and pinion drive, Framo Morat draws on over 100 years of experience in gear and drive technology and many years of industry expertise. Based on the modular system, the planetary gearhead, which is available in sizes 47, 64, 90, 110 and 140, is combined with a suitable pinion and corresponding rack, depending on the requirement profile of the overall system. The drive unit can also be optionally equipped with a lubrication system. The result is convincing: Framo Morat offers the right and economical drive system for every machine type.
