Market-leading drive technology for sensitive industrial robots for HRC

Improving the efficiency of your sensitive robotics solutions really can be this quick and easy

SensoJoint – the sensitive, torque-controlled complete drive

From industrial robots for human-robot collaboration (HRC) to medical robots to force feedback solutions – with its patented torque sensors, and unique integration and control know-how, Sensodrive has created a new era in robotics. This market-leading sensor technology is also at the heart of the SensoJoint – a ready-to-install complete drive that makes the development of sensitive robotics solutions faster and more efficient than ever before.

This unique Plug & Play actuator made in Germany not only sets new standards in terms of performance, precision and quality – thanks to its perfectly compatible individual components, SensoJoints are as compact as they are light and can be integrated optimally into any robotics concept.

 

 

Lower development costs

Developing your own robotics solutions costs time and money. SensoJoints are ready to install and easy to integrate thanks to their standard hardware and software interfaces. In addition, they are already fully safety-certified1 and fulfil all key safety requirements for HRC robotics.

Shorter time to market

SensoJoints are available in five sizes and can also be supplied in individual designs and performance levels if required. So you receive a customised actuator for each application that can be integrated into your products right away – without long development times.

Higher product quality

From the innovative Sensodrive torque sensor to the market-leading HarmonicDrive® gear to the powerful motors – only high-quality components that are perfectly compatible with each other are installed in the SensoJoints drive modules.

Maximum safety for human-robot collaboration

Sensodrive torque technology is used in the cobots of many renowned industrial and medical robot manufacturers. We are making this innovative technology available in a complete drive for the first time with SensoJoints, offering you the highest level of safety for your robotics solutions.

Fully safety certified

SensoJoints are already certified in accordance with all key international safety standards - such as e. g: ISO 13849, IEC 62061, IEC 61508 and DIN ISO/TS 15066 (from Q3/2022). So there's no need to go through any more lengthy certification processes.

Maximum safety for users humans

Thanks to market-leading sensor technology and precise, highly safe control technology, SensoJoints offer maximum reliability in every respect so that robots and humans can work together safely without protective fences.

Maximum production reliability

Sensodrive only uses high-quality components that are perfectly compatible with each other. SensoJoints are therefore completely maintenance-free and set new standards in terms of their durability.

 

 

Impressive quality made in Germany

High-quality lightweight materials, market-leading torque sensors and precise finishing ensure reliable product quality that is worth the investment. SensoJoints are extremely robust and completely maintenance-free.

Ultra-light and compact

Size and weight are reduced to an absolute minimum thanks to the perfect compatibility of all components and the use of sturdy, lightweight materials.

Highly precise

The innovative Sensodrive torque control ensures that motions are executed with maximum precision – without any oscillation.

Fast and powerful

Particularly powerful motors and market-leading gears with output bearing enable safe and reliable power transmission.

 

SensoJoints make the difference. In your industry, too.
