Robots that need a sense of feel and get it with the new, uniquely controlled contact element ACF. This active contact flange is a combined mechatronic actuator and sensor element. Its active components make the robot touch-sensitive which guarantees a high level process safety. Equipped with a standard flange, it is suitable for all automated solutions.
The ACF instantly automates handcraft with high demand for sensitivity and flexibility
-in delicate applications
- in problematic jobs
- in hazardous environment
In both, pulling and pushing equally, the ACF performs 100/500 N depending on model. It compensates surface tolerances of maximum 35/50/100 mm with guaranteed consistent contact force! No adaptation of the robot tracks. The process force remains constant even with changing orientations. No additional application programming required. Overturning strain of 40/65 Nm and torsional strain of 30/60 Nm are possible.
The ACF is an ingenoius automation equipment and comes ready-made. This even makes retrofitting unbelievably easy and persuasive. Cleverly simple integration using standard interfaces like hernet TCP/IP, analoge I/Os, CANopen, Profibus, XML...
Many applications that could not be implemented with inflexible equipment can be automated easily and effi ciently with the active contact flange.
