ATI Utility Couplers are designed for industrial applications where there is a need to change tools that pass utilities such as air and electrical signals in automated applications.
The modular body design is capable of mounting any of ATI’s standard add-on modules.
Quickly connect utilities in docking and fixturing applications.
ATI Utility Couplers are for applications where there is a need to quickly connect utilities such as air, fluid, power and electrical signals in docking and fixturing applications. The modular, multi-coupling design can attach any of ATI’s standard add-on utility modules and will improve cycle-time and flexibility in any production cell. The Master-side connection features a unique rotational compliance mechanism that allows for large tooling misalignments. Utility Couplers can be provided with an electric or air actuated drive cylinder. ATI Utility Couplers offer a quick and cost-effective solution to your challenging coupling needs.
What is a Utility Coupler (UC)?
A dedicated connection device that couples air or electric signals for docking and fixturing applications. A Utility Coupler is typically not designed to carry payloads. Instead, the ATI Utility Coupler includes compliance features that will compensate for severe tooling misalignments. A Utility Coupler is also known as a multi-coupling or quick connector device. A Utility Coupler can be automatic or manual, locking or non-locking, and it can feature compliance or have no compliance, depending on application requirements.
