November 6, 2012 - With 135 x 12 x 3 m work envelope, Bridge Gantry Type RBP is suitable for railway vehicle construction, shipbuilding, steel construction, or wind energy power plant construction. System can be equipped with 2 robots in different configurations. Besides longitudinal and transversal axis of gantry itself, RV20-16 robot can be moved along vertical axis, for total of 15 axes. Alternatively, 3 hand axes of articulated-arm robot can be combined with 3 linear axes to achieve 6-axis robot.

Reis Robotics presents the biggest robot of the company's history: 135 x 12 x 3m work envelope, e.g., for economic production of large structures in railway vehicle construction, shipbuilding, steel construction, or wind energy power plant construction.

The bridge gantry type RBP can be equipped with 2 robots in different configurations. Besides the longitudinal and the transversal axis of the gantry itself, the Reis robot type RV20-16 can also be moved along a vertical axis; thus, a total of 15 axes is available. Alternatively, the 3 hand axes of the articulated-arm robot can be combined with 3 linear axes to achieve a 6-axis robot. This solution is typical for Reis Robotics: as manufacturer, Reis has the ability to configure the axes according to the task.

Typical applications are:
• MAG welding and plasma cutting of ship building sections:  Programming is made offline via CAD/CAM coupling in piece number 1. Optical sensors balance the tolerances. Welding equipment with a total weight of 4t can be carried along on the gantry.
• Spot and laser welding of railway vehicles:  Here, the left and right side wall, as well as floor and roof structure, are accommodated under the gantry. Matching payloads and pressing options are available for the application technology.
• Manufacturing of blades for wind energy plants and boat hulls:  Here, the gantry makes use of its full work envelope. Versions can be easily programmed via macro technology.
