ATI Industrial Automation offers the Axia80, a force/torque sensor, which measures all six components of force and torque. The monolithic instrumented transducer also features silicon strain gages that reduce noise, enable increased stiffness and provide overload protection five to 20 times over the sensing range. The system is programmed with two different calibrations that the operator can switch between while the application is running. The default calibration allows for a large sensing range during high-speed moves or while applying high force. The smaller calibration suits more delicate processes that require higher resolution and accuracy.

All the electronics are built into the transducer body, and the sensor connects directly to the robot controller. It communicates through EtherCAT or Ethernet and is ideal for robotic assembly, grinding and polishing applications.
