ATI Industrial Automation has introduced a new Compliant Deburring Blade, a versatile solution for material removal

The robust collet accommodates a variety of readily available blades and media used with hand deburring tools. The blades can be changed quickly and easily—without the use of additional tools.

APEX, N.C. March 18, 2019 - ATI Industrial Automation has introduced a new Compliant Deburring Blade (CDB), its latest and most versatile deburring tool. The pneumatically-controlled, articulated design gives users the ability to tune the contact force to accommodate specific applications by changing the air pressure. The CDB excels in light and medium deburring, chamfering, and scraping operations on materials such as plastic, aluminum, steel, and brass. The robust collet accommodates a variety of readily available blades and media used with hand deburring tools. The blades can be changed quickly and easily—without the use of additional tools.

A simple mechanical design, without high-speed moving parts, makes the new blade an ideal solution for collaborative processes. The CDB's axial and radial compliance is ideal for maintaining constant force where surface irregularities are present, ensuring the highest quality results. Integrating the Compliant Deburring Blade in a robotic material removal application not only reduces robotic programming time, but also makes the programming process easier. For those looking to automate manual deburring methods, ATI's CDB offers flexibility and reliability that is fast and easy to integrate.
A patent on the new CBD is pending. For more information please visit: www.ati-ia.com/CDB

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
