The heavy automation robotic tool changer line has been developed for the resistance welding market..
Because these units use modules to pass utilities (e.g. water, electrical, pneumatic etc) they are able to handle numerous applications by simply selecting the desired modules.
In addition, these modules have extremely high moment capacity, allowing the tool to be used in heavy duty applications.
ATI robotic tool changers are specified and used in automotive car plants worldwide.
Reasons to choose ATI toolchangers
ATI toolchangers are reliable with a fail safe locking mechanism to secure the tool plate to the master plate even if air pressure is lost.
The quick change has a high moment capacity given the locking pistons large diameter and second taper. The quick change does not rock during high-inertia moves, preventing locking failure or repeatability problems.
The piston acts like a large dowel pin, aligning the master and tool with remarkable repeatability. The repeatability specifications are based on million-cycle testing protocols.
The quick change can lock successfully with a gap between the master and tool plates. Simple.
The plate design allows for easy robot mounting saving time and extra assembly steps.
A range of quick change tool stands are also available in horizontal and vertical configurations. The tool stand consists of mounting modules, tooling plates and sensor modules as well as posts and horizontal modules. In dirty environments debris covers are available to cover the tool side toolchangers when not connected to the robot.
