INNOVATIVE FLEXIBLE AUTOMATION FOR POWERTRAIN ASSEMBLY
ABB Powertrain Robot Systems and Ford Powertrain Manufacturing Engineering recently completed the joint development of a Flexible Cylinder Head Assembly (FCHA) system. The ABB FCHA design improves upon traditional serial assembly systems by allowing multiple cylinder head architectures to be assembled simultaneously without the need for time-consuming and production-halting changeovers. ATI Industrial Automation’s Robotic Tool Changers and Six-Axis Force/Torque Sensors are featured extensively in the FCHA system and are integral to its success.

A SOLUTION TO CHALLENGING ASSEMBLY TASKS
Automating assembly tasks that are performed manually can offer great potential for increasing efficiency, but pose several challenges. Some complex assembly tasks, such as inserting camshafts into engine blocks, require the assembler to “feel” their way to the correct assembly position. Robots alone cannot accurately measure and compensate for the contact forces experienced during these assembly tasks. ATI Industrial Automation's Six-Axis Force/Torque (F/T) Sensors and Universal Robots can now accomplish a variety of difficult assembly tasks using Force Control.

ATI AND BOS INNOVATIONS CREATE EFFICIENT AND COMPACT ROBOTIC WELDING CELL
BOS Innovations, FANUC America Corporation, and ATI Industrial Automation collaborated to create a compact robotic work cell that utilizes multiple material joining technologies. This cost-effective work cell optimized the number and flexibility of the industrial robots by incorporating multiple ATI Heavy Duty Robotic Tool Changers. There were constraints with the spot welding environment's size and with the flexibility of the cable and harness, making it clear that automatic robotic tool changing would be necessary.

ROBOSIMIAN'S ROLE ON THIS PLANET AND BEYOND, UTILIZING ATI FORCE/TORQUE SENSORS
RoboSimian is a multi-limbed robot developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). This unique robot was designed to operate in environments too dangerous or difficult for human intervention, such as disaster areas and oil spills. RoboSimian utilizes ATI Force/Torque Sensors to provide accurate data, enabling stable movement and allowing the robot to apply the correct pressure to the objects around it while it moves.

RC-900 AND RC-1040 RADIALLY-COMPLIANT DEBURRING TOOLS
ATI's RC-900 and RC-1040 Radially-Compliant Deburring Tools feature the same air-actuated compliance as existing models, but offer a higher power motor that is 50% more powerful than the RC-660, allowing the tool to handle more robust jobs. In addition to being more powerful, the RC-900 (900 watts) and RC-1040 (1040 watts) have been designed to be more balanced and provide more uniform compliance forces regardless of orientation.

RD-390-NL RADIALLY-COMPLIANT DEBURRING TOOL
ATI's RD-390-NL offers significantly lower-speed, radially-compliant deburring, running at 2800 RPM while under load and 5600 RPM under no load. The RD-390-NL can utilize many common industrial finishing media including tungsten-carbide burrs, brushes, and flap wheels. It also features a no-lube motor which allows for a cleaner work environment without the need for an exhaust air oil extractor.
