active contact flange
FerRobotics Compliant Robot Technology GmbH
Robots require a sense of feel which can provided through this contact element ACF. This active contact flange is a sensor element and mechatronic actuator. It has some touch-sensitive actuators which offers a high level of safety. All automated solutions are possible because it is equipped with a standard flange. The ACF automates handcrafts have high demand for flexibility and sensitivity. They are thus best for delicate applications, hazardous environments and problematic jobs. The ACF120-05 can perform up to 500 N which is a compensation for surface tolerances of maximum 50 mm, with a consistent constant force. Even with changing orientations, the process force remains constant.
