Robotic Tooling That Survives Washdowns
The QC-77 Robotic Tool Changer, developed by ATI Industrial Automation (Apex, NC) allows robots to automatically change end-effectors or other peripheral tooling in extremely stringent food-processing environments. A stainless-steel design resists attack by organic and inorganic compounds while withstanding aggressive washdown methods. A washdown-capable seal between the master- and tool-sides protects the locking mechanism from corrosive processes, and the integrated lock and unlock sensors are sealed off from the environment, resulting in increased reliability.
