Machine with moving bed and gantry

Postby samwelJoe » Wed Nov 04, 2015 8:39 pm

Hello users,,
I would like to ask how can one power and control a machine that used to have a moving bed in addition to a moving gantry and hence double the feed rate. Is that even possible in the first place? Can i achieve this by slaving the motors ie X - on gantry and X+ of the bed the later doing something similar with the y and then letting them operate in direct opposition to each other?

You can have your machine set up with between the bed and the table. This way whenever one is moved the other will be going the opposite direction thus doubling the available bed space whenever this takes place.

if doubling the movement speed would be the desired outcome the table would have to move in both x and y directions. You could do it but why? why not just size a drive system to attain the desired speed?
