Automated Inspection with Automatic Tool Changers

Using ATI's QC-11 Tool Changer and Tool Stands, the Autocalibration Kit enables each system to recalibrate before moving on to the next inspection job.

Güdel Integrates Tool Changers in Multi-Purpose Metal Forming Solution

When separating aluminum sheets prior to loading into the press, they can stick together due to a suction effect that occurs as the sheets are lifted. Most methods for destacking aluminum are very slow compared to steel destacking ...

Madison College Takes ATI Tool Changers to School

Stäubli robotic tool change systems, quality you can count on

Recently Stäubli introduced two compact fully automatic tool change systems, the MPS 130 and the MPS 260, for the medium payload segment, Stäubli Connectors rounds off the lower end of its existing series.

Case Study: ATI Tool Changers Transform Schmalz's Design-Test Center

Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.

ST Robotics Announces new Passive Tool Changer System

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
