ATI’s F/T sensors come in a variety of sizes to accommodate a range of payloads and offer many different interface options to suit your application environment. Unlike capacitive or optical sensing products, ATI’s intelligent use of silicon strain gages within the transducer body enable high overload protection. Stiffness with high resolution ensures the sensor will provide extremely precise data without flexing under load. These features give users confidence in the quality of the data and give a comprehensive look at all forces acting upon the process.
Force sensing technology breaks open scores of new possible applications for robotics and automation, especially where high precision is required. For example, an assembly process where feedback from the F/T sensor provides insight into the process to guarantee the correct orientation and insertion of the connector. In another part-finishing application, the F/T sensor enables programmers to monitor and control the amount of pressure applied to the parts.
The latest addition to ATI’s F/T product family is the Axia80. This new, high-performance, low-cost offering maintains the high quality and accuracy found in all ATI F/T Products, but features built-in electronics to reduce the system’s footprint.
