Want to see what a force torque sensor does in a manufacturing environment? Take a look at our recent video filmed in Saint-Gobain’s plant in Sully-sur-Loire, France. This factory has deployed collaborative robot cells to free employees from tedious, repetitive tasks. Robotiq’s FT 300 Force Torque Sensor has proven essential to automate the grueling glass polishing process, thanks to its path recording function.


 
 

See how automating this polishing increased capacity by 30% while eliminating reducing musculoskeletal disorders among operators. All of this, while achieving ROI in less than 12 months for the whole collaborative cell.
