AFD620

pushcorp AFD620

The AFD620 is part of PushCorp’s Active Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 115 lbf [511 N] in any orientation automatically. Consequently, this tooling is essential for automating robotic material removal applications where parts have complex or curved geometry.

The STC0612-BT40SM0612STC1015, and STC1515 are servo spindles optimized to mount to the AFD620. Together, they can automate a wide variety of robotic processes:

  • Robotic Grinding
  • Robotic Sanding
  • Robotic Polishing
  • Robotic Deburring
  • Robotic Drilling

If the application will have impact loading, interrupted cuts, or require a heavier spindle our AFD1240 is the largest in the series. It features an even more robust set of linear bearings and can apply 215 lbf [956 N].

The AFD620 Series is available in two configurations: AFD620-1 Vertical and the AFD620-2 Horizontal. The units are functionally identical, but differ in the orientation with which they attach to the robot. The AFD620-1 applies force perpendicular to the robot’s face plate, whereas the AFD620-2 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.
