ATI Industrial Automation (Apex, NC) is releasing a new standard tool changing option for smaller robots. The QC-29 Robotic Tool Changer brings the powerful and rugged technology of ATI’s Heavy Duty Tool Changers to robots in the 25 - 35kg payload class. The QC-29 is the first standard ATI Tool Changer designed with a rectangular body that mounts directly to 40mm and 50mm robot wrists.
The QC-29 also includes in-body lock/unlock sensing and a new locking mechanism. Built-in air ports and three module mounting flats make connecting utilities easy; and the Zero-Freeplay design ensures maximum repeatability for high-efficiency tool changing.
The QC-29 is compatible with ATI’s large selection of Standard Utility Modules and Tool Stands enabling a vast array of unique configurations ranging from ultrasonic welding to servo motor support and more.
