The Quick Change Adapter is mainly made of molded and machined parts of aluminium. The inner cone is however made of steel. Viewed from the front, you can see the inner cone and the plate for five air connectors.

On top of the QCA there is a mounting area including threaded holes for bolting to the manipulator. When the QCA is to be mounted on a robot, an adapter plate has to be fitted between the robot and the QCA.

The valve shuts off the compressed air supply to the QCA locking mechanisms. The electrical connector is used for signals from switches on the tooling equipment. These switches are used for encoding of the stamping.

The enable the QCA to loosen its grip of the tooling shaft, compressed air need to be supplied. At loss of compressed air, the mechanism is locked.

When the compressed air is turned off, the inner cone is contracted by the internal springs and the tooling shaft is pulled into the QCA. At the same time, the pneumatic components are connected to the valves and the electrical connection is made. When the inner cone is fully contracted, a locking clamp secures the tooling shaft.

When compressed air is supplied, the springs are depressed, the locking clamp is released and the cone moves out releasing the tooling shaft.
