The Active Compliant Technology works along the successful bionic principles of flexibility and adaptability. FerRobotics developed this technology with the most cutting-edge methods, marking a new milestone in flexible robotics.
The sophisticated combination of actuator & sensor, innovative power concepts and fine-tuned high-speed control is central to the technology. The precise interaction of this technological combination interacts results in the unique features of intuitive physical adjustment and flexibility. The innovative technology is embedded in a robust mechanical structure. This innovative set-up provides a straightforward operator convenience.
A system that is able to individually adjust the amount of force exerted on the object and that can respond to any sudden counterforce is superior. As it is intelligent, flexible and sensitive, as well as being robust.
FerRobotics automation equipment stands out for these exact qualities. Their physical compliance makes robot systems equipped with FerRobotics technology flexible, reliable and positioning tolerant. Flexible automation solutions adopt the exact tasks that adversely affect human health due to their monotony or the harsh environment in which they are performed.
FerRobotics products are equipped with a self-regulated positioning feature which forms another unique benefit. This technology enables individual contact up to the point of touch. Robots kitted out with FerRobotics solutions process moving objects precisely using their own initiative.
Thus enhancing robot usability by eliminating complex adjustments on work pieces or the need to intervene in any program routines. Autonomous positioning tolerance makes robots mastermind varied tasks and cover diverse applications.
The Active Contact Flange fits every robot like a velvet glove. Those robots equipped with ACF are able to reliably measure the force they apply, meaning they can meet the requirements of complex component parts of their own accord. ACF combines all the fortes of Active Compliant Technology to form a universally applicable Add-on. This technology is able to automate both operations sensitive to contact, and applications with various tolerance levels, in a simple, reliable and economical manner, in turn offering our clients a powerful tool to increase competitiveness on the market.

Grinding, sanding and polishing various materials is part of everyday life in numerous different industries and branches. The various applications are extremely diverse. FerRobotics products offer the ideal solution and enormous added value, especially where grinding, sanding and polishing tasks are still performed manually because due to the lack of sensitivity of the robots and machines the processes could not be automated until now. During the grinding process, they provide the necessary sensitivity to achieve the desired perfect surface quality. Better results are also achieved when used together with humans, as the ideal contact pressure is always guaranteed during grinding. This not only produces consistent quality, but also achieves higher productivity through shorter cycle times and lower costs.
FerRobotics products are used for surface treatment of all typical materials such as metals (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, alloys, precious metals, etc.), wood, plastics, ceramics / stone / concrete, glass, composites, etc. in numerous industries - such as:
The ability to maintain a consistent level of contact force is the most important factor of these applications. FerRobotics solutions distinguish themselves by their interactive ability to offset surface tolerance levels up to 100 mm whilst the contact force is guaranteed to remain consistent. They are able to constantly produce top-quality products even when usage conditions are variable.
