HEX-E 6-axis force-torque sensor
High Precision force-torque sensor - giving the sense of touch to your robot
6-axis force-torque sensor provide accurate force and torque measurements along all 6 axes. This gives you precise control when it comes to difficult assembly, polishing, sanding or deburring jobs. Additionally, the HEX software includes path recording, force control and special features for insertion tasks. This means reduced integration time for your production line. Designed to fit most of the current industrial robot arms. Common applications are polishing, sanding, deburring, grinding and assembly, but it can also be used for teach-in and crash detection.
- Flexible sensor extends automation possibilities to processes that weren’t previously possible
- High-accuracy sensor technology provides 95% better quality in insertion and assembly tasks.
- Easy programming gets even complex polishing tasks up and running in less than a day
