A common topic when putting together a motion control system and a gantry is whether to use end-of-travel limit switches, home sensors or absolute encoders. This really depends upon the application. So, let's talk about the pros and cons.
The new LD-250 mobile robot from Omron can handle a payload of 250kg and is the strongest and newest addition to their LD series of mobile robots.

When we size, select, and design gantry systems such as this one, we must make sure that we take into account the whole framing that this is going to be mounted on.

You cannot just start on the mechanics, pick the motors, pick the drives, pick the controls, pick the HMI. First you must understand everything all together. Since we're talking about mechanics, there's a few things we need to kind of jump on right off the bat. To figure out the holistic approach, there's a lot more to it.

One of the things that can really trip people up with sizing and selecting a gantry system is whether they need one or two motors for the X and X-prime. In this video we will shed some light on this topic.

A very important factor to keep in mind when sizing your gantry system is the cable management and cable lengths you'll need. If you think about it, we're going to need cables to span throughout every axis of motion.

Back in Episode 6, I explained to you the different types of linear mechanics. This included ballscrews, belt & pulleys, linear motors and even rack & pinion. I get the question all the time: which linear mechanics do I use?

After taking a break from mechanics for a few episodes, we're returning to the idea of a gantry. But, you may wonder what a gantry looks like. For an explanation of that, we're going to turn to Valin’s own Michael Reynaud with a special animation by Valin’s Cassidy in order to show you what a gantry looks like.

I am continuing my conversation with you about EMC installation. We talked about electrical noise, where it comes from and how we control it. We talked about the reasons for Mains filters. Now I'm going to talk a little bit about how to select Mains filters and unfortunately, it's a real black art.
A new way of thinking about nitrogen. A new source of sustainability. Advanced on-site generator producing nitrogen gas from compressed air to produce all the nitrogen you need.

Continuing on talking about electrical noise, I often times have suggested mains filters to customers and they say, “Well I'm not shipping my system to Europe so I don't need it.” But there are very good reasons for putting a mains filter on your system even when you're not shipping it to Europe. Let's take a look at this.

Today we're taking a break from all the mechanical topics we've been talking about and let's talk about an electrical one: electrical noise.

We're continuing to talk about terminology and this time we're talking about rotary mechanics. I’m Corey Foster of Valin Corporation. Let's talk about this.
Are your sensors regularly coming into contact with cutting oil, causing them to break down quickly?
