[Sept 2021] ATI Develops Ultra-Thin Force/Torque Sensor
ATI Industrial Automation reveals the newest offering from their Force/Torque Sensor (F/T) product family. The ultra-thin Mini43LP F/T sensor provides reliable force sensing in a rugged yet compact transducer. At less than 8 mm tall, it is uniquely suited for smaller automated applications. The low profile sensor body allows users to optimize their work envelope and preserve the robot’s lifting power for end-of-arm tools. The streamlined design features a bolt-down mounting pattern to minimize stack height, an angled cable exit to eliminate interference with adjacent equipment, and a large through-hole for simplified utility management.
ATI’s Mini43LP can enhance the accuracy and repeatability of research and development, product validation, assembly, and other micro force sensing applications. It is the ideal force sensing option for small delicate operations such as the assembly of electronic components or optics, product research and testing applications, laboratory automation, robotic surgery, and more.
The Mini43LP is the thinnest six-axis force/torque sensor available, combining the superior accuracy and strength of ATI’s renowned Force/Torque Sensors in an ultra-thin package. The Mini43LP is compatible with all of ATI’s existing communication interfaces and integrates easily with miniature robot models from Mecademic, Yaskawa, and others.
