The AFD92 is part of PushCorp's Passive Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 215 lbf [956 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 AFD92 is most commonly used for robotic material removal applications with flat or prismatic parts.
The STC0612, SM0612, STC1015, and STC1515 are servo spindles optimized to mount to the AFD92. For belt sanding applications our RBS372 would also be an excellent pairing. Additionally, the SWS100-3.7 or SWS100-7.2 can be added for weld shaving processes. Together, these products can automate a wide variety of robotic applications:
- Robotic Grinding
- Robotic Sanding
- Robotic Polishing
- Robotic Deburring
- Robotic Belt Sanding
- Robotic Weld Shaving
- Robotic Drilling
The AFD92 is the largest passive compliance device available. It features heavy duty linear bearings to handle applications with impact loading and interrupted cuts.
The AFD92 Series is available in three configurations: AFD92-1 Vertical, AFD92-2 Horizontal, and the AFD92-3 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 like Grinding or Robotic Belt Sanding.
