The center of gravity represents the point where the entire weight of the robot can be considered to respond and act. It is a critical factor that determines the stability and balance of a robot, especially during operation.
Interface suggests using their force plate option to install at the base of the robotic arm. Four 3-Axis Force Load Cells are installed between two force plates, then installed at the bottom of the robot. This creates one large 6-Axis Force Plate. The sensors force data is displayed and monitored with two BX8 Multi-Channel Bridge Amplifier and Data Acquisition Systems onto the customer’s PC.
Interface’s 6-Axis Force Plate was able to successfully measure the robot’s center of gravity.
