Feb. 19, 2018 – ATI Industrial Automation says its U1-050 Universal Compliance Compensator combines a range of features to achieve the “highest level of adaptability” in tasks such as automated assembly, bin picking, loading and unloading machines, robotic finishing and more.
The U1-050 UCC complies in different directions to overcome misalignment between the tool and the workpiece, says the company, adding that the mechanism offers simultaneous X-Y lateral compliance, X-Y-Z axis rotation, and Z compression. The pressurized internal reset piston returns the device to a repeatable centre. The stiffness can be tuned for specific payloads by varying the pneumatic pressure. ATI’s UCC can be configured for either a PNP or NPN compliance sensor and has an option for environmental protection if it is needed. The UCC comes with a standard 50-mm ISO mounting pattern, which, in most cases, will eliminate the need for interface plates, adds ATI.
