Achieving the competitive advantage with the sense of touch

Achieving-the-competitive-advantage-with-the-sense-of-touch

The world is not accurate. Humans can handle this. Traditionally, robots require absolute accuracy. In many cases, force/torque sensors can counter this automation challenge; When you mount a sophisticated sensor to a collaborative robot arm, you add a sense of touch. You mimic the human skin and its ability to perceive those touch sensations that feed our brains a wealth of information about the environment around us, such as pressure. For a manufacturing company, six-axis force/torque sensors offer an opportunity to remain competitive on the global scale and make low volume productions cost-effective.
