ATI introduces the MC-50 Manual Tool Changer

With intuitive and ergonomic lever operation, the patent-pending MC-50 provides a simple solution for quickly changing robotic end-of-arm tooling by hand. This compact and robust Tool Changer is designed for applications on collaborative robots that support payloads up to 25 kg, and small industrial robots supporting payloads up to 10 kg.

Apex, N.C., November 1, 2023 - ATI Industrial Automation has introduced the MC-50 Manual Tool Changer, which provides unmatched performance, reliability and quality for the manual exchange of robotic tooling.


With intuitive and ergonomic lever operation, the patent-pending MC-50 provides a simple solution for quickly changing robotic end-of-arm tooling by hand. This compact and robust Tool Changer is designed for applications on collaborative robots that support payloads up to 25 kg, and small industrial robots supporting payloads up to 10 kg.

Featuring an ISO 50 mm mounting interface on the Master-side and Tool-side, the low-profile MC-50 mounts directly to most cobots, and seamlessly integrates with many common cobot marketplace grippers and end-effectors.

The MC-50 also includes a safety latch button on the lever to provide secondary locking for increased safety and prevention of involuntary uncoupling. A variety of electrical and pneumatic utilities for downstream end-effectors are supported through four (4) M5 integrated pneumatic pass-through ports and a mounting flat for optional ATI Utility Modules.

Target industry segments include electronics, aerospace, automotive and general industry.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
