In gantry configuration, Z axis which is fixed to Y axis moves over a fixed platform / surface. Length and width of this platform covered by Z movement are limited to traverses in X and Y axis. Holmarc manufactures standard and custom stages in gantry configurations. Driver motors can be either stepper, BLDC or AC servo depending on the application. Holmarc provides control hardware and software for gantry stages with or without linear and circular interpolations. Standard stages are manufactured in aluminium alloy which is well suited for clean room environment.
For rugged applications, construction material can be steel as well. Re-circulating ball bearing guides are used for X and Y axis. For Z axis, guideways can be either re-circulating or non recirculating depending on the traverse and load conditions.
