ATI Develops Micro Robotic Tool Changer

QC-001 Provides Flexibility To Extremely Light Payload Robots

ATI Industrial Automation has developed a new Robotic Tool Changer for extremely light payloads. The QC-001 model Tool Changer features an extremely compact and lightweight design for high-speed "spider" or delta robots. This new Tool Changer enhances the flexibility of these robots by enabling them to switch end-effectors automatically. Multiple assembly, dispensing, sorting, and material handling operations can be performed by one robot, greatly increasing productivity, while reducing downtime for change-overs. The QC-001 Tool Changer also features integrated pneumatic ports and electrical connections.


Product Features and Options:

Payload: 2.2 lb (1 kg).


Weight (when coupled): 0.12 lb (0.055 kg).


Stack Height (when coupled): 0.67 in (17 mm).


Electrical Pass-throughs: 6-pins @ 3 Amp/50VAC.


Pneumatic Pass-through Ports (qty): (4) M5.

IntervalZero’s RTX64

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
