IMTS 2014 - New ATI Products and Solutions at the IMTS 2014 Show

Visit ATI at Booth #N-6429, September 8-13, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

ATI Industrial Automation will be exhibiting at the upcoming International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) on September 8-13, 2014, in Chicago, IL at McCormick Place, North Hall, Booth #N-6429. IMTS 2014 is the premier manufacturing technology show in North America. More than 1,900 exhibiting companies will occupy 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space at the McCormick Place complex in Chicago, Illinois.


ATI will display several live robotic demonstrations that feature Robotic Tool Changers, Robotic Deburring Tools, Multi-Axis Force/Torque Sensors, and Robotic Collision Sensors. All of their latest advances in robotic end-effectors and automation tooling will also be on display including:

New Tool Changer Models: ATI has broadened their line of Robotic Tool Changers to include the QC-160 for most 200 kg robots, the QC-18 electrically-actuated Tool Changer, and the QC-001 Micro Tool Changer for high-speed "spider" or delta robots. ATI Robotic Tool Changers provide the flexibility to automatically change end-effectors or other peripheral tooling. These Tool Changers are designed to function reliably for millions of cycles at rated load while maintaining extremely high repeatability.

Lateral and Pivoting Compensators: ATI has developed two new series of Compensators (patents pending) that allow compliance in multiple directions. These unique devices allow pieces to be gripped or routed reliably even if the workpiece is severely misaligned. Both of these series are designed for high endurance and high repeatability and have robust guidance allowing for high moment loads in a compact work envelope.

Manual Utility Couplers: ATI has developed a series of Utility Couplers that can be manually coupled/uncoupled quickly, designed for applications where there is a need to quickly connect utilities such as air, fluid, power, and electrical signals in docking and fixturing applications. Any of ATI's Standard Series Tool Changer Utility Modules can attach to the modular, multi-coupling design and will improve cycle-time and flexibility in any production cell.

Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. - The Random Robotic Case Erector System

Random Case Erectors are ideal for fulfillment centers and other end-of-line packaging needs. Save money by eliminating changeover downtime. Reduce ergonomic injuries by eliminating repetitive manual tasks. The Random Robotic Case Erector System includes: • FANUC M20iA/20 Robot • Combi gravity case magazine - holds 2 box sizes • Combi bottom flap folder with integrated 3M case sealing head. • Fixed robot base, anchored to the floor • Flexible end of arm tool to pick and erect multiple case sizes to eliminate changeover downtime • System wiring and controls • Color 7.5" touchscreen HMI display for selecting case size • Perimeter guarding with safety interlocks on doors • Programming for Robot, PLC/PMC, HMI and Vision • Complete documentation in electronic format • On-site training and support • Compliance with all applicable robotic safety standards. Alternate safety configuration may be available to allow an operator to changeover a case size in one magazine while the robot continues to work in other magazines. Contact Motion Controls Robotics to learn more about how to implement this system into your current end-of-line operations.
