Two new compensation units provide precise robot parthandling by compensating for deviations in X axes and Y axes. The AGE-F compensates for amounts up to 5 mm, and the AGE-E for amounts to 4 mm, along with angular deviations to 3.5 degrees.

AGE-Fs use spring force, with three different spring rates available for each of the four sizes of AGE-Fs. Spring rates can be pre-loaded to specific values via an adjustment screw.

Equipped with cross roller guides, AGE-Fs operate purely mechanically, without any pneumatic elements, for smooth running, lower susceptibility to wear and longer life. In addition, they are designed to mount directly to PGN+ and PZN+ grippers and have robot ISO flanges on opposite mounting surfaces.

Schunk’s AGE-E compensation units use elastomer pads, and optional pneumatic centering locks hold the units rigidly on center when needed. AGE-Es are available for direct mounting to PGN+, PZN+, JGP and JGZ grippers from sizes 50 to 200. Depending on gripper used, maximum handling weights for the units range up to 24 kg.
