The OptoForce 6 axis F/T range of sensors provide 6 degrees of freedom force and torque measurement. They are able to be used with a variety of industrial arms, such as the Universal Robots and Kuka range of robots. Integration with the Universal Robots range also allows for a simple plug and play installation process.

The OptoForce 6 axis F/T range of sensors are robust and durable. They guarantee precise measurements up to 200% overload and even after total deformation during 600% overload, the silicone regains its original form and is able to measure forces with the same precision, without any permanent damage whatsoever. In addition to this, the OptoForce 6 axis F/T range of sensors boast significantly better resolution than its competitors and is competitively priced.

Common applications for the sensors are:

  • Presence Detection
  • Centre-pointing
  • Hand-guiding
  • Path Recording
  • Polishing (Plastic and Metal)
  • Box Insertion
  • Pin in the Hole
  • Stacking/De-stacking
  • Palletizing
  • Metal Part Sanding
