ATI Industrial Automation has developed the RCE-710, its first Radially-Compliant Electric Material Removal Tool

The new electric tool features built-in compliance to simplify and streamline the programming process, and to compensate for part and fixturing misalignments. The motor rotates clockwise and counterclockwise and produces continuous torque on the work piece.

APEX, N.C. September 23, 2020 - ATI Industrial Automation has developed the RCE-710 Radially-Compliant Electric Material Removal Tool, its first all-in-one, electrically-powered material removal tool.

The RCE-710 features large bearings, a shaft designed for demanding robotic use and a variable speed motor with a range of 0 to 13,000 rpm. It is built to handle a diverse array of robotic material removal tasks such as rust and weld spatter removal, blending, polishing and light grinding.

The new electric tool features built-in compliance to simplify and streamline the programming process, and to compensate for part and fixturing misalignments. The motor rotates clockwise and counterclockwise and produces continuous torque on the work piece.

Available as a complete end-effector package, the RCE-710 includes the deburring tool, power and signal cables and connectors, and an easy-to-use controller. This versatile and dynamic material removal solution can perform a wide array of tasks with carbide burrs, brushes, flap wheels, unitized wheels, and a variety of other cutting, grinding and polishing media.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
