Robots that have the ability to feel can perform the most demanding mechanical assemblies. Affixing tiny parts that are delicate or grinding and sanding a finished surface to perfection are ways that intelligent robots work with controlled velocity and force.
There are many components like vision systems and advanced software that allow robots to adapt to their environment. Other types of precision are important to manufacturers in areas like assembly and product testing.
Force sensors help robots meet these critical needs to serve manufacturers in a variety of industries. These sensors send data signals that allow the robots to “feel” what they touch and they can manipulate objects with precision, speed, and accuracy that surpass human capabilities. Robot manufacturers and system integrators want high-performance force sensors for applications in material removal, part fitting, assembly, and product testing.
