The roboLoop system was launched as a world’s first at the 1998 Hannover Fair. Developed and patented in-house by GÜDEL. It was, and still is the only curved-track gantry and transfer system on the market.
The crucial advantage of a roboLoop system over a conventional gantry system: Curved-track providing a closed loop system with one or more carriers.
The development of the roboLoop has created a curved-track gantry and transfer system which makes new concepts and solutions in automation technology possible. The principal advantage of the roboLoop, compared to conventional gantries, is that it allows, by virtue of the curved track, for flexible arrangement of production facilities. Similar processes can be joined together in cells independent of operation sequences.
Thanks to the maximum flexibility of system functions, operation sequences, linkings and storage, the roboLoop affords entirely new and innovative solutions:
By comparison with conventional linear linkings the multi-carrier system achieves a substantially higher availability through the simple redirection of robo-carriers. Maintenance is hence possible without the need to stop production.
