Afag’s YZ boom systems designed for high payloads and fast, precise applications.

Afag has added its EPS giga YZ and the EPS tera YZ to its portfolio of YZ standard systems. The EPS giga YZ can apply 255 Newton press-in forces, while the slightly larger EPS tera YZ can apply 1024 Newton. The EPS giga YZ moves up to 15 kilograms and the EPS tera YZ up to 20 kilograms. The high payload does not influence the repeat accuracy of up to +/-0.02 millimeters. Standard weight compensation is available for Z-strokes of up to 500 millimeters. Both systems can move a 10kg payload 100 millimeters on the Y axis and 100 millimeters on the Z axis in a 1.5-second pick & place cycle. Like all Afag systems, the two products contain the complete system wiring and parameterization, from the console up to the gripper jaws.
