NEW QC-160 ROBOTIC TOOL CHANGER PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY, EXCEEDS 200 kg ROBOT LOAD SPECIFICATION

The new QC-160 Robotic Tool Changer, recently developed by ATI Industrial Automation, Apex, NC, has a high moment capacity in a lightweight and compact design and utilizes the same proven Locking Mechanism as ATIs QC-200 Series.

The new QC-160 Robotic Tool Changer, recently developed by ATI Industrial Automation, Apex, NC, has a high moment capacity in a lightweight and compact design and utilizes the same proven Locking Mechanism as ATIs QC-200 Series. The Tool Changer features internal Lock/Unlock sensing and (5) 3/8 NPT and (4) ½ NPT pass-through air connections and easily mounts directly to most 200 kg robots. The Tool Changer enhances the robots ability to switch end-effectors automatically and efficiently, greatly increasing productivity, while reducing downtime for changeovers.


ATI Robotic Tool Changers provide the flexibility to automatically change end-effectors or other peripheral tooling with accuracy and ease. ATI Tool Changers are designed to function reliably for millions of cycles at rated loads while maintaining extremely high repeatability. A variety of models are available to cover a wide range of applications from very small payloads to extremely heavy payload applications requiring significantly large moment capacity.

QC-160 Tool Changer Details
The QC-160 Tool Changer handles payloads of up to 600 pounds, and features integrated pneumatic ports and electrical connections.

Additional features include:
• Patented Failsafe locking mechanism to ensure high-moment capacity and strength
• A common Lock/Unlock air supply and a Lock/Unlock sensing method
• Four (4) M5 pass-through air connections, eight (8) 3A/50VAC electrical connections
• A stack height of only 16.9 mm (0.67 inches). Also, No-Touch™ locking technology allows up to 0.1 in plate separation when locking.
• Positional repeatability (X, Y, and Z) tested at a rated load at one million cycles is 0.0006 in.
• All locking parts are made of 58 HRC stainless steel and are designed for superior reliability, repeatability, and strength.

Horner Solutions Group - Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Horner Solutions Group offers a pre-programmed solution that is fast and easy to implement. No development on the user end, just a simple setup on the touchscreen and you can start monitoring and collecting data in minutes. With the ever-growing need for production data in the industry, we wanted to help bridge the gap for many production companies to be able to start collecting accurate and functional OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) data within just a few minutes of setup, as opposed to the weeks/months many companies spend developing their own solution from scratch. For any customers that may have a need outside of the typical product mold, we also offer engineering services for custom hardware and software solutions of various types.
