ATI Industrial Automation’s QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer is a feature-packed solution for automatic end-effector exchange.

The QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer features a low stack height and mounts directly to ISO 9409-1-31.5-4-M5 robot wrists. This tool changer is compatible with ATI’s modular Tool Stands and has an optional tool storage hook to make robot programming easy.

APEX, N.C. March 2, 2021 - ATI Industrial Automation has developed a new standard robotic tool changing and storage solution; the QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer. This lightweight yet durable tool changer offers a variety of configuration options with ATI's Pass-Through Utility Modules and Tool Stand systems. An optional ML12 Electrical Module attaches easily to the QC-7 Tool Changer body, which also includes five pass-through air ports and lock/unlock air fittings.


The QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer features a low stack height and mounts directly to ISO 9409-1-31.5-4-M5 robot wrists. This tool changer is compatible with ATI's modular Tool Stands and has an optional tool storage hook to make robot programming easy.

The pneumatically-actuated QC-7 features No-Touch locking technology and a patented Fail-Safe locking mechanism for a secure connection between the master and tool. The design integrates lock/unlock sensors without the need for an additional interface plate. This tool changer handles payloads up to 35 lbs (16 kg) and is compatible with variety of industrial and collaborative robot models.

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.
