Sometimes the perfect solution to time-honoured problems is hovering under our very noses. In the case of drones, this philosophy can be entirely literal. UAV technology is on the cutting edge of the consumer market - however, UAVs have greater potential locked within their status as a casual hobby. Commercial drones are growing in popularity, and their scope for allowing us an unbound perspective on the environments we cherish is widely recognised. Their potential as tools of the construction industry is only now coming to light as the full picture of this technologys influence has built up, piece by piece, under the dawn of the robotic age.
ATI Industrial Automation's MC-10 Manual Tool Changer provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. Its compact yet robust design is optimized for collaborative robot applications. The ergonomic twist-collar locking mechanism ensures a secure attachment of the tool and easy manual operation with tactile feedback. This Manual Tool Changer can carry payloads of up to 22 lbs and includes multiple fail-safe features that resist vibration and prevent loosening. The MC-10 Manual Tool Changer has integrated air pass-through connections and options to connect electrical utilities if needed. ATI will feature the new MC-10 along with a variety of other robotic demonstrations and product displays at this year's IMTS show in Chicago (Booth #236417).
