Located on the end of the POGO actuator rod, the vacuum end effector applies a vacuum force to clamp the part to be fabricated in place. Depending on its diameter, each end effector provides 50-100 lbs. of pull-down force. Its free-floating head easily conforms to the part's surface.

The standard end effector is designed with either a quick-change bayonet or threaded style mounting, and can be easily removed from the POGO actuator. Design modifications for specific needs are also accommodated.
