Some Industrial Robot Manufacturers Offer Force Control Packages

Robotic applications are constantly evolving. A whole new kind of process was developed with the introduction of end of arm force/torque sensors. These sensors can detect the forces and torques applied at the robot tool. There are a lot of different applications that could be improved with this kind of device. Either in labs or in manufacturing processes, these devices execute very distinct applications. Most of the time, the FT sensors are an addition to the ones included on the robot. Sometimes the process looks like this: you buy a robot, you buy a sensor and a tool, you try to fit everything together and... hope it will work. To remove these uncertainties, robot manufacturers have started putting together force torque control packages that are designed to fit directly on the robot wrist. Here is a short list of some robot manufacturers that already make these packages.
