Bridge gantry-type robot cell handles very large structures

November 12, 2012

Reis Robotics has introduced the bridge gantry-type RBP robot. It is the biggest in the company's history, with a 442.93- by 39.37- by 9.84-ft. work envelope, for production of large structures in railway vehicle construction, shipbuilding, steel construction, and wind energy power plant construction.

The system can be equipped with two robots in different configurations. Besides the longitudinal and the transversal axis of the gantry itself, the robot type RV20-16 also can be moved along a vertical axis, making a total of 15 axes available. Alternatively, the three hand axes of the articulated-arm robot can be combined with three linear axes to achieve a six-axis robot.
