ATI Axially-Compliant Orbital Sander
ATI Industrial Automation’s AOV-10 Axially-Compliant Orbital Sander is the ideal robotic solution for surface preparation and finishing.
With built-in compliance, the AOV-10 is well-suited for many robotic applications—even those that require a very light touch. A pneumatically actuated compliance mechanism allows for dynamic control of contact forces to ensure consistent results.
Double-acting motion offsets the weight of the tool to produce the desired finish no matter how the tool is oriented. The user’s ability to integrate industry-standard media and vary the air pressure and contact forces on the workpiece makes the AOV-10 extremely versatile.
Built-in compliance produces consistent contact force when path or part geometry is not exact.
- Compact, lightweight design enables compatibility with various robot models.
- Flexible mounting options suit multiple work cell configurations.
- Direct access housing provides serviceability with minimal downtime.
- Vacuum-Ready option
How does it work?
While the motor is engaged, the abrasive media is pushed against the work piece using an adjustable air supply to control the contact force. This constant pneumatic force allows the tool to respond axially to variance in part profile. The force control system provides very high stiffness in the path direction while allowing low to high force adjustability to the user in the compliant direction. The floating head design of the tool and media interface enables quick reaction to any variances in part position or robot path. As a result, robot programming time can be reduced by up to 75%.
