Gantry robots & 6-axis robots – Are they same or different??

A 6-axis robot, also known as an articulated robot, offers six degrees of freedom, allowing complex tasks in tight spaces. In contrast, gantry robots excel in scalability, larger work envelopes, and ease of integration with less maintenance. We explore the unique strengths and differences, emphasizing gantry robots’ suitability for large-scale material handling and 6-axis robots’ precision in confined spaces.
