Robust gantry for high production applications, scalable from 500 to 12,000 lbs. Utilizes AC drives and absolute closed-loop positioning for both axes.

Model shown below rated for 2,000 lbs. total payload with a span of approximately 15 feet (tanks 10 feet front-to-back). Scaled designs for up to 12,000 lbs. total payload.

Typical configuration:

Horizontal Access

Length: Unlimited travel length, generally frame is five feet longer than travel requirement

Width: Front-to-back dimension of tankline plus minimum of 3 feet for walkway in front and 2 feet at rear of tankline for access to valves. Span does impact size of structural steel utilized (six to eight inch beams typical)

Construction: steel, with two part epoxy coating

Maximum Operating speed: 200 fpm (dependent on fixturing).

Driven by a 3 HP AC motor with absolute encoder feedback

Mounting: The unit can be floor mounted (U-shaped configuration) with vertical legs twelve to fifteen feet on center, or directly hung from a correctly designed overhead or beam

Vertical Axis

Stroke: 30+ inches

Min headroom: Tank height + stroke requirement + four feet

Construction: steel, with two part epoxy coating

Maximum Operating speed: 50 fpm (dependant on fixturing)
