After several postponements due to the health crisis, the 2021 edition of Global Industrie in Lyon will take place from 6 to 9 September. As planned in 2020, we will be present with a machine stand and 3 partners within the Aquitaine Robotics / French Federation of Robotics Clusters eco-system. This is an important decision because we wanted to exhibit a large machine and demonstrate our ability to work in partnership with multiple players to offer a quality service from the pre-project stage to maintenance to our customers and end users.


A logistical challenge met to ship this large capacity 3-axis robot gantry

The testing of this Cartesian gantry and its vertical telescopic axis took several days in the workshop before it was ready for shipment. A challenge, since the gantry weighs almost 8 tons without its Comau polyarticulated robot.


VLM delivers a large capacity additive fabrication machine with 2 LUCAS linear axis

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a cutting-edge subject in industry with a very significant growth potential. IREPA Lasers, Aperam and their partners (École supérieure des technologies industrielles avancées (Bidart), Institut Jean Lamour (Nancy), 3D Prodways group (Paris) and the design office TPSH) are launching into the printing of large parts, with LUCAS axis.


[Video] For almost 60 years LUCAS has been innovating and excelling in the service of industry.

Today, with a complete range of standardised and configurable linear axis and robotic gantries, we are ready to become a major European player in linear guiding.

New: Lifts

Still in the “new products” range, it is now possible to use our axes in vertical position in order to realize lifts to raise and lower robots of any brand.
