Six Axis Fore OnRobot Force Sensor
Kunwei sensor can be used to measure the force on the wrist of the robot in real time and realize the active force output control, which is equivalent to the human sensory nerve. It is a particularly important sensor in high complexity work, restrictive operation and coordinated operation. It can not only improve the flexibility of enterprise production, but also greatly reduce the cost of robot reprogramming caused by replacing product production line.
KWR75 series transducer is embedded in highly precision intelligent circuits, it is equipped with adapter flange, the customer could install flexibly according to their own needs. The series is available in several models, measuring range from 30N to 400N. The product uses digital signal ( serial port ) output by default, and can be embedded in analog signal data acquisition module to support analog signal ( such as 0-10V, 4-20mA, etc. ) receiving equipment ; and a serial port server device can also be used to support Ethernet-related equipment.
Model of KWR75
An application that we are seeing often with the sensor is the benchtest application. A robot is paired with a sensor and a gripper and is performing some cyclic action on a product. Where the sensor gets involved is when a given amount of force has to be applied on a device. The robot can apply a limited force that has been set by the programmer and it can also monitor this force. This means the product is tested at a given force and the force is monitored to see if there is any change in the behavior of the product.
Which Applications Requires Torque Readings
Hand-guiding would be an example that uses the torque information. Hand-guiding is the action of guiding a robot with your hands. This means you have to apply a certain amount of force on the tool to teach the robot a path, for example. As the force is applied on the tool (that is lower than the sensor), it creates a torque. This torque can be read in all the directions and the signal can be sent to the computer for analysis.
Which Applications Requires Both Force and Torque
Assembly tasks would be an example of applications that require both force and torque readings. In fact, in an assembly line, you can encounter different problems (misalignment, tight fits, force tests, etc.). All kinds of situations are present in these applications. You might combine your assembly with a bench test, so that you can test a given feature of your assembly, for example. Or, you can use it to teach your robot specific tasks like Dragging Teaching.
