Apex, North Carolina – ATI Industrial Automation’s U1-050 Universal Compliance Compensator combines a variety of features to achieve adaptability in tasks such as automated assembly, bin picking, loading and unloading machines, and robotic finishing.

The U1-050 UCC complies in many directions to overcome misalignment between the tool and the workpiece. The patented mechanism is suited for demanding high-endurance applications and offers simultaneous X-Y lateral compliance, X-Y-Z axis rotation, and Z compression. The pressurized internal reset piston returns the device to a repeatable center.

The stiffness can be tuned for specific payloads by varying the pneumatic pressure. ATI’s UCC can be configured for either a PNP or NPN compliance sensor and has an option for environmental protection if needed. The UCC comes with a standard 50mm ISO mounting pattern which often eliminates the need for interface plates.
