A Multi-Axis Sensor is a force-torque transducer that measures up to 6 different forces (Fx, Fy, Fz) and torque (Mx, My, Mz), in 3 spatial directions and converts it into an electrical output signal. Multi-Axis Sensors are also known as Multi-component transducers or force-torque sensors (6 axis force sensor, 6 axis sensor, 6 axis force/torque sensor). Multi-Axis Force Sensors manufactured in the US by FUTEK utilizing Metal foil strain gauge technology.
A Multi-Component Sensor (also commonly known as force-torque sensor or multi-component load cell) designed to measure in all spatial directions: forces in tension and compression (±Fx, ±Fy, and ±Fz) as well as torques or moments in clockwise and counterclockwise (±Mx, ±My or ±Mz). These special force-torque sensors are equipped with multiple strain gage bridges that accurately measure the forces and torques applied in one direction with little or no cross-talk interference from force or moments applied in other directions.
Which applications require six axis force and torque readings?
6 Axis Force Sensors are used for product testing, robotic assembly, grinding, polishing, and other industrial applications where holding a steady position and trajectory high-repeatability is necessary. This sensor is particularly important in complex assembly operations where the robot will encounter different problems (misalignments, tight fits, force tests, etc) and precision motion control over the end-of-arm tooling applied force (robot end-effector) is paramount. The six axis load cell allows the controller to recognize what is going on with the robot tool and improves end-effector dexterity.
