Impressive demo of ATI’s Industrial Automation tools tech on a Stäubli robot. Note, when the robot grabs the TV the tool transfers the power and video without interruption, @ MDM2012
Some info from ATI’s website ( ati-ia.com ) on this tech provided below:
“ATI Industrial Automation is the leading engineering-based world developer of robotic accessories and robot arm tooling, including Automatic Tool Changers, Multi-Axis Force/Torque Sensing Systems, Utility Couplers, Robotic Deburring Tools, Robotic Collision Sensors, Rotary Joints, and Compliance Devices. Our robot end-effector products are found in thousands of successful applications around the world.
What is a robotic end-effector?A robotic end-effector is any object attached to the robot flange (wrist) that serves a function. This would include robotic grippers, robotic tool changers, robotic collision sensors, robotic rotary joints, robotic press tooling, compliance devices, robotic paint guns, robotic deburring tools, robotic arc welding guns, robotic transguns, etc. Robot end-effectors are also known as robotic peripherals, robotic accessories, robot tools, or robotic tools, end-of-arm tooling (EOA), or end-of-arm devices. End-effector may also be unhyphenated as end effector.”
