High Speed Precision Gantry for Laser Machining, 3D Printing

POSTED 09/08/2021

High speed gantry stages with linear motors for laser machining, laser processing, additive manufacturing, 3D printing. Precision XYZ motion provides the basis for industrial highly accurate laser machining and 3D printing processes. High speed linear motors provide fast, frictionless motion with zero wear, in contrast to screw drive and belt driven gantries and linear stages. Non-contact linear motors not only provide higher speed and precision but also increased reliability.
