Intuitive robot force guidance for high-precision performance.

Epson’s high-performance Force Guide takes robot automation to the next level with superior precision and outstanding rigidity. Powered by proprietary Epson Quartz Technology, it enables Epson robots to detect six axes of force with precision down to 0.1 N. Driven by real-time servo system integration, Force Guide delivers fast, tactile feedback to guide robots for high-precision parts placement. Easy to configure and set up, Force Guide features a point-and-click interface with pre-configured solutions and built-in objects, reducing the development time for precision repeatability applications.

  • Powerful performance — integrated force control system driven by proprietary Quartz Technology from Epson
  • Ultra precise — detects force and adjusts motion with amazing precision – down to 0.1 N
  • Superior rigidity — durable sensor built to withstand excessive force
  • Fast robot/force guidance response — internal sensor with real-time servo system integration
  • Point-and-click setup — easy-to-use interface with graphical wizards, charts and more
  • Fast, easy implementation — helps reduce the amount of coding with decision-based flowcharts and intelligent objects
  • Real-time monitoring and data logging of force feedback — for quality control
  • Multi-axis force/torque sensor — includes three linear and three rotational measurement axes
  • Easy set up and configuration — fully integrated into the Epson RC+® development environment
  • Simplify common force guidance applications — perfect for tasks such as screw driving, part insertion, grinding/polishing and more
