The Motion Control Show

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.  Is that framing going to be simply supporting the actuators at just the ends?  If so, we might get some deflection and vibration caused by the moving of the load or even just the weight of the actuator itself.  On the other hand, is the frame going to support that whole actuator underneath or just various points along the way?  We must make sure that we ask these questions and take them into account when we're sizing these actuators.
