Like all of ATI Industrial Automation’s (Apex, NC) force/torque sensors, the new Axia80 measures all six components of force and torque. The monolithic instrumented transducer also features silicon strain gauges that reduce noise, enable high stiffness and provide overload protection five to 20 times over the sensing range, according to the company. The Axia80 is programmed with two different calibrations the operator can select while the application is running. The default calibration allows for a large sensing range during high-speed moves or while applying high force, while the smaller calibration suits more delicate processes that require higher resolution and accuracy. The Axia80 communicates through EtherCAT or Ethernet and is suitable for robotic assembly, grinding and polishing applications.
