The AFD82 is part of PushCorp’sPassive Compliance series. This end effector can apply up to 100 lbf [444 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 AFD82 is most commonly used for robotic material removal applications with flat or prismatic parts.
The STC0612-BT40, SM0612, STC1015, and STC1515 are servo spindles optimized to mount to the AFD82. For weld shaving applications our SWS100-3.7 or SWS100-7.2 would also be excellent pairings. Together, these products can automate a wide variety of robotic processes:
Automated Weld Shaving
If the application will have impact loading, interrupted cuts, or require a heavier spindle our AFD92 is the largest in the series. It features an even more robust set of linear bearings and can apply 250 lbf [1112 N].
The AFD82 Series is available in three configurations: AFD82-1 Vertical, AFD82-2 Horizontal, and the AFD82-3 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 automation application.
