ATIQC 29ToolChanger 400x275

November 30, 2021

ATI Industrial Automation, which develops robotic accessories and robot arm tooling, has announced a new standard tool changing option for smaller robots. The QC-29 Robotic Tool Changer aims to bring the powerful and rugged technology of the company’s Heavy Duty Tool Changers to robots in the 25 kg to 35 kg payload class.

The QC-29 is the first standard ATI Tool Changer designed with a rectangular body that mounts directly to 40 mm and 50 mm robot wrists, the company said. IT also includes in-body lock/unlock sensing and a new locking mechanism. Built-in air ports and three module mounting flats aim to make connecting utilities easier. In addition, the Zero-Freeplay design “ensures maximum repeatability for high-efficiency tool changing,” ATI siad.

The new QC-29 is compatible with ATI’s standard utility modules and tool stands, giving customers several unique configuration options, ranging from ultrasonic welding to servo motor support and more.
