Open-source gantry robot
March 11, 2022 | By Maryam Farag
Festo’s modular gantry robot platform for laboratory-based automated liquid handling systems allows OEMs to develop test or assay solutions in minimum time.
These modular gantries feature an open-source motion and fluidic application programming interface (API) with Python, Java, and .NET/C# drivers.
Three-axis modular gantry robots for each platform can be delivered by Festo as ready-to-assemble kits, including cabinet and all necessary supporting components, or as preassembled systems.
The modular platform follows a Lego-like building block strategy of employing interoperable components that can be assembled with hand tools.
