Collaborative robots, or cobots,are on the rise as they are more affordable, versatile, and user friendly along a range of different industries. However, as they are used to work alongside humans, the need for extensive safety measures need to be taken.
Interface’s Model 6A40A 6-Axis Load Cell can be installed at the head of the cobot to understand the amount of force and torque being applied during interactions with humans. These results can be logged, displayed, and measured when connected to Interface’s BX8-HD44 BlueDAQ Series Data Acquisition System with included BlueDAQ software.
The customer was able to detect any potential force or torque anamolies of the cobot, especially when working alongside a human worker during operations.
