Smart Flex Effector

Ingenious, precise, automatic.

The next step in robotic precision

The Smart Flex Effector is a sensor-based compensation unit with an active measuring function in six degrees of freedom. It increases precision, e.g. in handling robots, and opens up completely new areas of application for robots and Cartesian systems.

The intelligent all-rounder

With the Smart Flex Effector, position deviations of the tool are detected using high-resolution position sensors and translated into active correction movements of the manipulator. The intelligent sensor technology enables readjustment in real time. In addition, the measured values provide information about process quality and can be used for quality monitoring and logging.

The applications

The new compensation module can be used for handling or joining processes with narrow tolerances in automation technology or robotics: whether it be for joining small tolerances, for quality documentation and Tool Center Point detection or for the automated compensation of position drifts in the rotary axes as well as in the x-, y- and z-direction.
