The primary objective of any tool changer is to quickly mount a tool to a robot's arm. The latest offering from >SAS< Automation (Xenia, OH) is a semi-automatic tool changer that delivers on this challenge; enablingaccurate, repeatable mounting of robotic end-of-arm tooling with impressive speed and accuracy.

NF_100831_SAS_lo_res.jpgThe QSA 150T tool changer automatically connects multiple ports including air, vacuum, and electrical, thereby, greatly reducing set-up time. Reliable port connection provides additional safety ensuring that all connections are aligned correctly. Built with a modular construction, the tool changer couples air and vacuum lines automatically to the robot side.

Built for heavy duty applications, the QSA 150T is made of lightweight aluminum with durable steel locaters. It has an allowable maximum loading of 200 lbs. Each tool supplies 10 pneumatic connections. "This new semi-automatic tool changer is a faster, safer and more accurate tool changer and a better overall system for managing tools in a fast paced environment," says Rob Dalton, General Manager for >SAS< Automation.-[email protected]
