The ACF XSHD completes your automation setup as an autonomous force manager for jobs with high requirements on sensitivity and flexibility. Within the existing robot paths it interactively compensates material tolerances up to 11.5 mm on workpiece and tool and maintains an exactly constant contact force even on random surfaces or instable objects. The process force remains constant even with changing orientations and so guarantees the absolutely reliable and safe operation. The consistent process force of every ACF solution delivers constant results in varying processes flows. For the full quality report the Active Contact Flange reports the actual contact situations back to the overall control system. So every ACF solution guarantees for an exact and reproducible performance in top quality.
