Cartesian Manipulator

Cartesian Manipulator

This teaching station contains a 3-axis Cartesian manipulator with an electric drive, which allows students to learn the basics of construction, control, programming and movement implementation of this type of systems, including working area protection. It is designed to demonstrate handling, stacking and storing operations (for example warehouse).  


Technical data: 

  • Structure made of aluminium profiles 
  • Linear guides for the manipulator’s X and Y axes 
  • Drive transmission via toothed bars 
  • DC drive motors with gears 
  • Three-finger, self-centering electric gripper for “pick-and-place” operations 
  • Double limit switches – a total of 6 hardware and 6 software range limits 
  • Optical barrier to protect the working area 
  • Working area dimensions: 300 x 175 x 80 mm (width / length / height) 
  • Operator panel equipped with 3 signal lamps, 2 joysticks for manual control (1 two-axis and 1 single-axis), switch with a key, emergency stop switch 
  • 2 quick connectors and DB37 for connecting the power supply, controlling the feeder operation and reading signals from sensors and control buttons 

Dimensions and weight: 

  • 400 x 400 x 250 mm (length / width / height) 
  • Weight: 7 kg
