Open Gear Lubricant is a lubricant base comprising a major amount of a vegetable oil and a minor amount of a solid inorganic lubricant thickened with a biodegradable organoclay gellant. Open gear lubricants are designed to be highly tenacious adhering firmly to gear teeth. They provide a thin water repellent film, which gives excellent corrosion protection with outstanding load carrying capabilities.
Gantry robot has Cartesian coordinate motion. The gantry is a way of mounting a robot manipulator to provide a larger work envelope. A jointed arm or a two-or three-axis wrist can be attached to the gantry carriage to provide maximum movement within the work envelope. The robot can be mounted in the inverted position, which allows access to certain types of weldments. An elongated work area can be obtained by mounting the robot on a moving floor carriage or on a wall. The work envelope of the gantry robot is a large rectangular box. The gantry mounting system is popular for shipyards and for welding extremely large weldments.
