ATI Industrial Automation has developed what it says is “a new standard robotic tool changing and storage solution” – the QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer.
This lightweight yet durable tool changer offers a variety of configuration options with ATI’s Pass-Through Utility Modules and Tool Stand systems.
An optional ML12 Electrical Module attaches easily to the QC-7 Tool Changer body, which also includes five pass-through air ports and lock/unlock air fittings.
The QC-7 Robotic Tool Changer features a low stack height and mounts directly to ISO 9409-1-31.5-4-M5 robot wrists.
This tool changer is compatible with ATI’s modular Tool Stands and has an optional tool storage hook to make robot programming easy.
The pneumatically-actuated QC-7 features No-Touch locking technology and a patented fail-safe locking mechanism for a secure connection between the master and tool. The design integrates lock/unlock sensors without the need for an additional interface plate.
This tool changer handles payloads up to 35 lbs (16 kg) and is compatible with variety of industrial and collaborative robot models.
