Torque Sensors for Tools in Industrial Automation

For automated assembly line processes, consistency and quality control are key. Depending on how products are assembled, it may not always be straightforward to rectify issues with earlier stages of the manufacturing process. This can then result in expensive and time-consuming delays.1 To avoid these issues in automated industrial processes, one approach is to use built-in sensors as part of…

The Benefit of Custom-Made Force Sensors in the Medical Industry

The function of many drug-delivery, therapeutic, and medical device systems often relies on a change in force. This change can be initiated by either the patient (ie, manually) or can be changed by the device itself (ie, automatically). Force sensors can measure changes in force and relay this information to the clinician and/or patient for adjustments. Certain insulin systems, for…
