The smaller spindle pitch does it

SA spindle booms have been a proven component in the Afag product range for many years. Now the series of linear modules is being expanded by the stronger axes of the FL series. The new components are significantly stronger than the standard axes from the Afag handling construction kit while retaining the same module geometry. This is made possible by a smaller spindle pitch.

Where the standard axes reach their limits in joining operations or press-fitting processes with greater force requirements, the SA-1-FL, SA-3-FL and SA-6-FL spindle axes can now take their place. The new SA spindle axes of the “Force Line” (FL) series achieve peak forces of up to 600 Newton and can handle payloads with a weight of up to 16 kilograms. This allows the user to have more options and flexibility in axis design, suitable for the respective application.

The FL spindle axis is available with a spindle diameter of 8, 10 and 12.7 millimeters. Depending on the axis, the standard stroke lengths are 50 to 300 millimeters. The components of the FL series allow the user powerful and very precise feed movements with a repeat accuracy of ± 0.01 millimeters.
