Torque Sensors in Robotics

At Ixthus, torque sensors are one of our product categories we offer. This technology is being used more and more in robotics.

A torque sensor is used to convert torsional mechanical inputs into mechanical outputs. They monitor and measure twisting and turning forces in a wide range of industries.

Robotics is a huge part of the movement in Industry 4.0., sensors are required to perform faster and more efficiently whilst still maintaining the same level of robustness, resilience and being maintenance-free wherever possible.

Why choose our torque Sensors?

Our torque sensors come from our trusted suppliers; NTCE and Burster.

The technology used within them is suitable for making robotic applications more efficient. They can measure shear, bending and torque within machines either through contactless measurement or directly at the components.

Being able to take these measurements has several advantages:

  • The torque sensors are maintenance-free and therefore provide the required measurement data in real-time.
  • No requirement for complex modifications of existing machines; the torque sensors can be integrated easily into a selection of existing systems.
  • Guaranteed precise and reliable data

Applications of Torque Sensors in Robotics

Although this is an upcoming industry, there are already some applications that are using torque sensors in robotics the most common application is the torque and angle measurement of a typical robotic arm. These are then used for pallet loading, material handling, inspection, welding and pic and place applications.

The Advantages Of our Torque Sensors for Robotics

  • High quality
  • Fast delivery
  • Plug and play technology for easy installation
  • Contactless measurement – wear less technology means that little to no maintenance is required
  • Highly accurate
  • Highly resilient
