Robotiq offers FT-300 6-axis force sensor

Robotiq FT-300 gripperRobotiq has launched its newest force torque sensor, the FT 300, bringing a sense of touch to robots. With plug and play integration on all Universal Robots, the FT 300 makes automation of high precision tasks such as product testing, assembly and precise part insertion easy and fast to setup.

The new FT 300 is specially designed for Universal Robots in terms of its coupling, integration and programming, opening up a new range of force sensitive applications that are now fast and easy to automate thanks to the new all-in-one packages, which include all the necessary components from hardware to software.

“We strongly value our customers’ opinions and knowledge,” explains Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq. “And we want to use this to provide positive solutions for the successful automation of their project. We strive to make our products user-friendly and fast to integrate in any kind of industrial application, so that our customers can concentrate on their business. That is what the FT 300 is all about.”

Also because the sensor is digital it doesn’t require an external signal processing box. This means customers will hit the ground running and save on downtime.

This new product is now available through Robotiq’s global partners. These high-tech distributors can quickly integrate and train local customers to program the force torque sensor on Universal Robots using the plug and play kit provided by Robotiq.
