Planar surface gantry EXCM

Testing touch screens and mechanical pushbuttons

The test device Chameleon from PKC Electronics uses various adapters to test mobile end devices - automatically, quickly and reliably. Included: our planar surface gantry EXCM, a compact handling system.

Small planar surface gantry with rectangular working space for extensive functionality in the smallest of spaces

Compact, flat design for payloads of up to 4 kg in three sizes: 10, 30 and 40

  • Easy integration thanks to the matching drive and controller package
  • Minimal moving mass thanks to the parallel kinematic drive concept
  • Stroke scalable along the X and Y-axes
