ATI Launches New Force/Torque Sensor for Smaller Automated Applications

ATIMini43LP 400x275

October 25, 2021

ATI Industrial Automation has announced the development of the ultra-thin Mini43LP Force/Torque Sensor, which provides high-precision force sensing in a rugged, yet compact transducer. At less than 8mm tall, the sensor is part of the company’s force/torque sensor family and is aimed at smaller automated applications.

The low profile sensor body lets users optimize their work envelope and preserve the robot’s lifting power for end-of-arm tools, ATI said. 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.

The Mini43LP is also designed to enhance the accuracy and repeatability of research and development, product validation, assembly and other micro force sensing applications. ATI said it is ideal for small delicate operations, such as the assembly of electronic components or optics, product research and testing applications, laboratory automation, robotic surgery, and other applications.

The sensor is the thinnest six-axis force/torque sensor available, the company adds, combining the accuracy and strength of ATI’s force/torque sensors in an ultra-thin package. It is compatible with all of ATI’s existing communication interfaces, and integrates easily with miniature robot models from Mecademic, Yaskawa, and others.

More details on the new Mini43LP is available here. Additional specifications can be accessed here.
