HEX 6-Axis Force/Torque sensor

OPTOFORCE TECHNOLOGY

OnRobot 6-axis force/torque sensors provide 6 degrees of freedom force and torque measurement. Our sensors are designed to fit most of the currently used industrial robot arms. Integration with various available interfaces is simple. Common applications are force control devices, teach-in activities and crash detection, but the sensors can be used next to end-effectors in case of grinding, polishing or deburring tools.

Currently available models:

HEX-E /High Precision
HEX-H /Low Deformation

OnRobot Fix and Rotate - How to insert a bulb

The following OnRobot Fix and Rotate application demonstrates how to work with Bayonet-mounts where rotations are used to fix two parts. In this video, we will see how a light bulb is inserted into a GU10 socket

Hand Guiding with OnRobot Force Torque Sensor

The following video will demonstrate how smooth and easy it is to move the UR Robot with the help of the OnRobot Hand Guide toolbar and the OnRobot Force Torque Sensor. This solution helps you in industrial automation.

OnRobot Move Application: How to do force limited robot move

The following video will demonstrate how to move the UR robot and stop it to avoid collision. UR robots have a built-in Safety Stop function which halts the robot when sensing a force greater than 10N. The OnRobot Force Torque Sensor along with the OnRobot Move application fine tunes this stop function, so even the smallest counter-forces – that are smaller than 10N – can be perceived. This solution helps you in industrial automation.

OnRobot Path Recording Application

The following video demonstrates how to record a path using the OnRobot Force Torque Sensor within minutes. Using the the Path Recording function of the OnRobot Hand Guide Toolbar, any complex path can be easily recorded. This solution helps you in industrial automation.
