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.
