The OptoForce Force Torque Sensor provides robots with a sense of touch that has not been previously available to collaborative robots. It is the most flexible force torque sensor on the market.

The optical sensor seamlessly connects to the Universal Robot and an increasing number of other robot brands, and has a high resolution that enables it to work with fragile parts. OptoForce provides a number of applications out of the box – it can search for the next part in a stack, and can detect when it comes into contact with any object.

It can record the path you move the robot when it is in free drive mode, and can optically identify the centre of a part.
