ZTE Docking Finger are designed to line up with the ZBU Bushing. If air is applied to the docking finger, a piston is expanding 4 steel balls which are positively looking into the ZBU bushing. ZTEs feature magnetic pistons which allow the use of a sensor for dock or no-dock signal. Applications that benefit from the use of Docking Fingers are any de-molding situations where the part is forced out of the tool or insert situations where a part is pushed into the tool. The combination of Docking Fingers in an EOAT and Bushings in a tool avoid any force going back to the robot. They are available in 2 sizes.

All ASS pneumatic actuated components feature magnetic pistons. This allows the sensing of the piston position using magnetic field sensors.The left picture shows the GRF-SH-MFS bracket, designed to install a teachable MFS T2 (magnetic field sensor) The right picture shows the GRF-SH-ICS bracket designed for the ICS 8 sensor. Two ICS 8 sensors can be fitted on every gripper finger including this docking finger.
