Frequently Asked Questions

A gantry robot, otherwise known as a gantry or cartesian robot, is a system that allows movement along linear paths within a 3D space.

Usually our maximum is 3000x3000x750 (xyz), but we can also offer longer strokes. The best way is to send us an enquiry and we will check your requirements.

In principle, all electric motors can be connected. At igus, we mainly use stepper motors.

0.3 to 0.5mm.

1m/s, but there are exceptions here, too. The best way is to send us an enquiry and we will check your requirements.

Feel free to try out gantry robot configurator. We would also be happy to assist. Send us an enquiry and we will check your requirements.


Workspace is sometimes referred to as the work envelope; workspace and work envelope is the area within physical reach of a gripper, print head, etc.


The XY actuator is made of an X axis with part number GRW-0630. The Y axis is a ZLW-1080. There are two axes: X’ – Y’ with encoder motors. The workspace is 500mm x 100mm. The list price is $1,291.70.


The XY gantry is made from an X & Y axes, both ZLW-0630s. There are two axes: XX’ – Y’ with encoder motors. The list price is $1,683.50.


The XYZ gantry is made from an X axis with a ZLW-1040, Y axis with a ZLW-1080 and a Z axis with a GRW-0630. There are three axes: XX’ – Y’ – Z with encoder motors. The workspace is 500mm x 500mm x 100mm. The list price is $2,461.10.
