ATI gives Medical Robotics Manufacturer a Competitive Edge

Custom Tool Changer Developed for Robotic Treatment System

Apex, NC,  October 28, 2009
 

ATI Custom Robotic Tool Changer.jpgFor the past 20 years robotics has revolutionized surgery, and new innovations are continuing to push the boundaries of medicine. Accuray Incorporated developed the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System, the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy. 

Accuray needed a unique and highly accurate changing system for one of its CyberKnife System components, called collimators. They required a collimator exchange system that facilitated a safe, smooth, reliable method for its robot to change from one collimator to another right in the treatment room. ATI worked closely with Accuray to develop a highly custom, compact Tool Changer that passes the radiation beam through its center, while maintaining sub-millimeter accuracy and repeatability. One of the engineering challenges for this project was to incorporate ATI’s patented fail-safe locking technology into the CyberKnife System’s complex internal mating geometry. To date, Accuray has brought the superior tumor treatment capabilities of the CyberKnife System to more than 70,000 patients around the world.

ATI Industrial Automation celebrates their 20 year anniversary as the leading engineering-based developer of robotic accessories and robot arm tooling. ATI’s engineering department, the largest of its kind for a robotic tooling company, is focused on developing cost-effective, state-of-the-art products and solutions.
