1. Safety
1.1
General
The TSS Tool Stand is intended to for use in industrial applications for tool changing and
storage and therefore requires the use of a Tool Changer.
Prior to purchase and installation, the customer should verify that the Tool Changer selected is
rated for the maximum loads and moments expected during operation. Refer to Tool Changer
manual Document# 9610-20-1000 or contact ATI for assistance.
The customer is responsible for ensuring that the area between the tool and the tool stand is
clear of foreign objects during tool drop-off. Failure to do so may result in serious injury to
personnel.
The customer is responsible for ensuring that the area between the Master and Tool sides is
clear of foreign objects during mating and subsequent coupling. Failure to do so may result in
serious injury to personnel.
The ATI TSS Tool Stand is intended for use with No-touch locking Tool Changers only, such
as ATI changers QC-5 through QC-21.
DANGER: The gap between the Master and Tool sides is a pinch point. All
personnel should be prevented from placing any part of their body or clothing
in the gap, especially during actuation of the locking mechanism.
!
CAUTION: Damage will occur if contact is made between the TSS Rack and
Alignment Pins PRIOR to tool drop-off.
For proper tool drop-off, ATI recommends 1mm maximum clearance between TSS mounting
block contact surfaces and TSS alignment pins. See Figure 1.1 for reference.
1mm Gap Prior to
Tool Drop-Off

possibility of stress pullout, kinking, rupture, etc. Failure of some critical electrical and/or
pneumatic lines to function properly may result in injury to personnel and equipment.
All electrical power, pneumatic, and fluid circuits should be disconnected during servicing.
1.2

Precautions
DANGER: During operation, the area between the Master and tool must be kept
clear.
DANGER: Power and air should always be removed prior to maintenance or
repair.
!
CAUTION: The TSS Tool Stand system is only to be used for intended
applications and applications approved by the manufacturer.

2. Product Overview / Description
The ATI TSS Locking Tool Stand system is compatible with ATI Tool Changer sizes QC-5 through
QC-21. The Stand is designed for maximum flexibility to fit most customers’ applications. The
modular system allows for you to essentially “build your own” tool storage rack based on the number
of tools, desired positioning, and mounting arrangements. Refer to Section 7.3 of this manual, or ATI
Product manual 9610-20-1068 for more information on rail components and non-locking tool stand
racks.

2.1
Mounting Block Assembly with Lock Cylinder
The TSM Mounting Block Assembly includes a rigid block with locating pins that interfaces
with the customer’s tooling. The assembly includes M8 SHCS mounting hardware, and is
designed to mount to extruded rail components such as Bosch 45 x 45 series. The block can be
mounted to any other surface that has the corresponding mounting features, or it can be welded
directly in place on the customer’s fixture. Supply air pressure to retract the lock, exhaust air,
and the cylinder will spring the locking cylinder back in place. Lock cylinders for the mounting
block are available with position sensors. The cylinder position sensors are shipped as separate
line items. A Switch Track is also needed to mount the cylinder sensor to the cylinder. Refer to
Section 6 for part numbers.
2.2
Interface Plate Assembly
The TSS Interface Plate Assembly simply provides an interface between your tool and the Tool
Changer. The Interface Plates are sized specifically to correspond with the Tool Changer and
Mounting Block. The TSS Interface Plate assembly also includes 2 stainless steel alignment
pins that interface with the V-groove and through hole on the Mounting Block. The standard
Interface Plates are sold blank to allow customers to machine their own tooling bolt patterns.
ATI can provide specific tooling patterns upon request.

3. Installation
3.1
General
Determine the proper location and configuration of your tool stand.
Attach the TSS Mounting Block with Lock Cylinder to an extruded rail, or a smooth flat
surface using the 2 M8 SHCS provided. In general, use Loctite 242, and tighten to
approximately 150 to 200 in-lbs.
3.2
Prox Sensors
To ensure proper function of proximity sensor, first clamp sensor onto holder and lightly
tighten. Push barrel up so that sensing cap screw target bolt head is .030” above the face of the
sensor as shown in Figure 3.1. Tighten cap screw.

3.3
Lock Cylinder Installation and Adjustment
The lock cylinder is shipped attached to the mounting block with Loctite 222. Some adjustment
may be necessary, depending on the application. The cylinder threads into the back of the
housing block. If needed, the cylinder can be rotated out of the housing less than 1 revolution,
in order to orient the cylinder air supply port. It is recommended to appropriately exhaust the
cylinder air in order to allow the cylinder piston to spring back. See Figure 3.2
Appropriate air line exhaust is needed to
allow the cylinder’s piston to spring back
reliably.
Some adjustment may be
necessary to position the
cylinder air inlet relative to
the mounting block
Figure 3.2—Lock Cylinder Adjustment
3.4
Lock Cylinder Sensor Installation
Lock cylinder sensors are available. Currently the cylinder sensors attach to the cylinder on a
track. This track is also shipped separately and must be bonded onto the cylinder in the position
desired by the customer.
Refer to figure 3.3. Track and Sensor Mounting is as follows:
• Clean the cylinder body with Acetone. Remove all oil from body surface.
• Locate edge of track as desired on the cylinder.
• Use a solid bead of glue for the entire length of the track used. Bead should fill the
center channel of the track. Loctite U-05FL or similar adhesive is recommended.
• Adhere to the recommended glue times as specified by the glue manufacturer.
• To install the sensor, slide the sensor into the track.
• Extend and retract the cylinder while positioning the switch until the switch’s operating
window is correct.
• Secure the switch in the cylinder track by turning the set screw with a hex driver.
Tighten to 1.5 in-lbs. Use Loctite 222. Do not over-tighten.
• Cycle the cylinder both extending and retracting a number of times to confirm the
correct operation and adjust as required.

4. Maintenance
It is recommended that the following areas must be checked at least once every 100,000 cycles. Earlier
intervention may be necessary if a problem is identified prior to the scheduled maintenance checks.
•
Inspect the Alignment Pins and Block Grooves for cracks and wear. Replace if necessary.
•
Check the Alignment Pins for looseness. For the horizontal shoulder screw, re-apply Loctite
242, and tighten to 40 in-lbs. For the center vertical peg, re-apply Loctite 222 and tighten to
27 in-lbs.
•
Check to verify that the TSS Mounting Block has not loosened. Apply Loctite 242 and tighten
the M8 SHCS to 150 in-lbs if required.
•
Check to verify that the TSS Lock Cylinder has not loosened. Tighten if required.
•
Check to verify that the TSS Prox Holder has not loosened, and that the proximity sensor has
not loosened. Tighten if required.
•
Inspect sensor cables and all utility lines for wear.
•
Inspect and wipe clean all sensor faces to ensure proper function.
5. Troubleshooting
Refer to the table below for trouble shooting information.
Symptom
Possible Cause / Correction
Tool drop-off location no longer
