INTRODUCING FORCE/TORQUE SENSOR NEWS FROM ATI
ATI Industrial Automation’s Multi-Axis Force/Torque (F/T) Sensors enable high-precision force control in a variety of applications. Using silicon strain gauges, the F/T sensor converts mechanical loads from all six axes simultaneously into force and torque values. Force/Torque sensors from ATI are used in industrial applications such as robotic assembly, grinding, and polishing and in research environments such as haptics, neurology, and robotic surgery. The stories you are about to read illustrate a wide array of customers and cases that benefit from force sensing. For more information visit our F/T Products home page.

ATI DEVELOPS SPACE-RATED FORCE/TORQUE SENSOR FOR MARS 2020 ROVER
ATI reached out to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) with an offer to develop a custom Force/Torque Sensor for Perseverance, the latest Mars 2020 Rover project. JPL is the leading US research entity for robotic exploration of our solar system and manages NASA’s Deep Space Network, the hardest-working telecommunications system on the planet. The Mars 2020 mission is a collaborative effort undertaken by NASA, JPL, and many other organizations commissioned to develop new technology to explore the surface of Mars.

ATI F/T SENSORS GIVE HIREBOTICS A BETTER FEEL FOR THE JOB
Hirebotics out of Nashville, TN, is on a mission to make automation more accessible. After years in the manufacturing industry, Hirebotics understands that an automation solution is much more than purchasing new equipment. Their business model enables customers to hire a robot, trained and ready, to perform a job just as they would a contract employee. Hirebotics understands the challenges of developing and implementing automation technology and works to streamline the process for their customers.

ATI’S F/T SENSORS GIVE KINDHEART SURGICAL SIMULATORS "ALL THE FEELS"
Surgeons and surgical teams are known for their ability to perform with accuracy under immense pressure. Timing and efficiency are critical to the success of many procedures, but practicing first is not always an option. With KindHeart surgical simulators, surgical teams can learn to perform at even higher levels, while gaining insight into what a patient experiences during the process. With the help of ATI’s Force/Torque (F/T) sensors, KindHeart’s surgical simulation devices are able to capture feedback from forces exerted on a patient during surgery.

ATI FORCE/TORQUE SENSORS UTILIZED IN NEXT GENERATION STONE CUTTING SYSTEM
ATI Industrial Automation recently collaborated with CORE, a consortium that has developed the LeanMachine, a state-of-the-art manufacturing solution for the stone industry. The system consists of a large environmentally-protected Omega191 Force/Torque Sensor from ATI and a Six-Axis industrial robot equipped with a cutting tool that machines the stone. The LeanMachine solution allows any stone factory to optimize all product-finishing stages increasing throughputs when compared with human dependent processes.
