Nov. 13, 2017 – Robotiq has launched what it describes as a 10-times more sensitive version of its FT 300 force torque sensor.

With Plug + Play integration on Universal Robots, the FT 300 performs repeatable precision force control tasks such as finishing, product testing, assembly and part insertion. The force torque sensor comes with an updated free URCap software able to feed data to the Universal Robots Force Mode. The URCap also includes a new calibration routine — a step-by-step procedure that guides the user through the process. A new dashboard also provides real-time force and moment readings on all six axes. Moreover, pre-built programming functions are now embedded in the URCap.
