In this customer test, we equipped an igus room gantry with a Zimmer parallel gripper and programmed it so that the robot inserts various USB sticks into a USB port, removes them again and grips the next one. In this way, the quality control of the USB sticks could be automated. The advantage for the customer is that the employees are no longer burdened with very monotonous tasks and the investment is quickly amortized.

Gantry robots consist of several linear axes that enable multidimensional movements and can be used in diverse areas. Portals are also compatible with a wide variety of end effectors, camera systems and accessories. Programming is also easy with the free igus Robot Control.
