ATI Develops New Low-Cost Force/Torque Sensor
Axia80 Provides High Resolution with Outstanding Overload Protection
Apex, NC , April 7, 2017
"There's been a movement in the industry to start automating man-made products," explains Robert Little, CEO of ATI Industrial Automation. "In order to for them do that, they need robots. In order for those robots to be completely successful, they need force sensing feedback."

At the 2017 Automate Show in Chicago, Illinois, ATI unveiled the newest offering in their Force/Torque Sensor product line: the Axia80. Like all of ATI’s Force/Torque Sensors, the 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 5 to 12.5 times over the sensing range. The Axia80 is programmed with two different calibrations; one allows for a large sensing range during high-speed moves or when applying high force, while the other suits more delicate processes that require higher resolution and accuracy. Operators can switch between the two calibrations to provide better control of dynamic processes–even while the application is running.

All the electronics are built into the transducer body, and the sensor connects directly to the robot controller. This keeps the unit’s cost down and footprint smaller, without sacrificing accuracy, resolution, or robustness. The Axia80 communicates through EtherCAT or Ethernet and is ideal for robotic assembly, grinding, and polishing applications.

The Axia80 will also be available with a fully-integrated software interface compatible with all Universal Robot Models. Featured in Universal Robots’ new UR+ online showroom, the Axia80 sensor package includes the transducer, interface plates, and cables necessary to quickly connect the transducer to a Universal Robot.
