Force Control in Actuators and Robot End Effectors

April 28, 2023
Specific actuators are often mounted on transport systems such as robotic arms and gantries. This paper details the capabilities and properties that ensure your next application will deliver the goods.

Motors and end effectors come in many shapes and sizes but compared to actuators that transport an object from point A to B, end effectors also integrate force sensing to ensure that objects being carried aren’t crushed or dropped. This paper focuses on servo actuators that function as end effectors, often mounted on transport systems such as robotic arms and gantries. Understanding their capabilities and properties will help ensure that your next application delivers the goods without dropping the ball!
