The AFD52 is part of PushCorp’sPassive Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 8.0 lbf [37 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 AFD52 is most commonly used for robotic material removal applications with flat or prismatic parts.
High speed spindles can be mounted to the AFD52. Together, they can automate a wide variety of light duty robotic processes:
