Epson has also high-precision force sensors. The S250 series is available as an additional option for EPSON’s 6-axis and SCARA robots.
The sustainable and sensitive force sensors use piezo-electric quartz sensor technology developed by EPSON, making them capable of detecting minimal forces in 6 different directions in a precise and consistent way. Mission commands for the robot’s operation are included with the sensor, which makes the system simple to use.
Thanks to the S250-series robots can feel minute forces, even up to 0,1 N, which makes them suitable for automating complex tasks such as assembling vulnerable components with high precision. The sensors can also be used for tasks that previously were dependent on human sensory perception, such as polishing and deburring, which means employees get rid of repetitive manual work.
