HEX-H 6-axis force-torque sensor
Low Deformation sensor - giving the sense of touch to your robot
6-axis force-torque sensors 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

Haptic force/torque sensors offer companies the opportunity to increase their production efficiency in many areas of application to a significant degree.
In addition to specific new automation capabilities, a sense of touch in robots can also represent a strategic advantage for companies.
The use of haptic sensors for industrial robots immediately offers several essential competitive advantages.
With haptic force/torque sensors, the robot arms can detect the slightest force exerted and resistance encountered, and react accordingly in real time. The polishing ...
