RAD’s Automatic Tool Changers offer:
The master plate, installed on the robot* arm, locks to the tool plate with a pneumatically-driven locking mechanism. Air pressure must be applied to the unlocking port to release the tool plate thus preventing master and tool plate separation if air pressure is lost. Gravity is used to separate the master from the tool plate**.
* Can also be used on CNC machines, gantry systems, and pick & place devices
** On the lightest model, the TC-5, a special push-piston is used to prevent sticking while unlocking (a common problem when working with the light payloads this model is designed for).
