ATI drastically improves speed of DeviceNet tool changes with patent-pending InstaToolTM Technology

Apex, NC,  March 31, 2004
ATI Industrial Automation has released a new patent-pending technology for DeviceNet called InstaToolTM.

InstaTool was created to minimize the delays that are common during tool changes in a DeviceNet environment. These delays can be as long as 8 seconds. By using ATI InstaTool technology, the new tool-side module communicates tool ID and tooling I/O to the master/robot module in just tenths of a second after tool changer coupling. There is no longer a need to establish a DeviceNet node on the tool side, which in turn prevents power-ups from negotiating lengthy DeviceNet protocol sequences. Tooling is available on the network in under a second.

ATI InstaTool changers have already been implemented in production environments with great success. Follow the links for more information on the product as well as a case study of an InstaTool installation.
