Compliance Devices - Overview
Robotic Compliance Devices (Alignment Devices) compensate for fixture misalignments, positioning errors, shifting parts, and/or variances in part tolerances by providing the robot arm* with a little 'give' so production continues uninterrupted.
Applications that could benefit from using a RAD Robotic Compliance Device (Remote Center Compliance Device) include machine loading, machine unloading, assembly operations, and insertion operations.
RAD's most popular Pneumatic Robotic Compliance Device is designed specifically for applications where compressed air is in use.
RAD's original Spring Loaded Robotic Compliance Device is for those applications where compressed air is not available.
*NOTE: RAD Robotic Compliance Devices can also be used on robot arms, linear actuators, pick & place machines and other automated equipment.
