The AOV-10 axially compliant orbital sander is specifically designed for robotic surface preparation and finishing. With built-in compliance, it is suited for many different robotic applications – even those that require a light touch. A pneumatically actuated compliance mechanism allows for dynamic control of contact forces and ensures an ideal result every time. The compliance force is adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of applications. Double-acting motion offsets the weight of the tool to produce the desired finish no matter how it is oriented. Users can mount the AOV-10 directly onto their robot or a fixture, in any orientation, including upside-down. With a compact and lightweight design, AOV-10 is optimized with 3M abrasives and includes a media kit of sanding discs and backup pads.
