The AFD72 is part of PushCorp's Passive Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 50 lbf [222 N] in any orientation. Unlike the active series, this equipment relies on an external air pressure regulator to set the applied force. This pressure must change when a new orientation is programmed in order to maintain a constant force. For this reason, the AFD72 is most commonly used for robotic material removal applications with flat or prismatic parts.
If the application will have impact loading, interrupted cuts, or require a heavier spindle our AFD82 is the second largest in the series. It features a more robust set of linear bearings and can apply 100 lbf [444 N].
The AFD72 Series is available in three configurations: AFD72-1 Vertical, AFD72-2 Horizontal, and the AFD72-3 Table Top. The units are functionally identical, but differ in the orientation with which they attach to the robot wrist, or mount to a table. This allows you to optimize robot reach and dexterity for your particular application.
