The AFD310 is part of PushCorp's Active Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 60 lbf [267 N] in any orientation automatically. Consequently, this tooling is essential for automating robotic material removal applications where parts have complex or curved geometry.
If the application will have impact loading, interrupted cuts, or require a heavier spindle our AFD620 is the second largest in the series. It features a more robust set of linear bearings and can apply 115 lbf [511 N].
The AFD310 Series is available in two configurations: AFD310-1 Vertical and the AFD310-2 Horizontal. The units are functionally identical, but differ in the orientation with which they attach to the robot. The AFD310-1 applies force perpendicular to the robot's face plate, whereas the AFD310-2 is parallel. These configurations allow you to optimize robot reach and dexterity for your particular application.
The FCUFLEX controller is used to set the applied force and monitor I/O. This equipment can be controlled using a PLC, robot controller, or PC.
