ATI Industrial Automation’s U1-050 universal compliance compensator (UCC) has a variety of features for adaptability in tasks such as automated assembly, bin picking, machine loading and unloading, and robotic finishing.

The UCC complies in a range of directions to overcome misalignment between the end effector and the workpiece. It is said to be suitable for high-endurance applications, offering 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, increasing its versatility. The UCC can be configured for either a PNP- or NPN-compliance sensor. It also has an option for environmental protection. It comes with a standard 50-mm ISO mounting pattern, which can eliminate the need for interface plates in some cases.
