OptoForce is a Hungarian company that produces a force torque sensor that brings the sense of touch to industrial robots that otherwise require the dexterity of the human hand. Easy-to-install, lightweight and robust, the OptoForce 6-axis sensor offers greater opportunities to perform high-precision work such as polishing, box insertion, and other finer assembly tasks.

On Robot is a Danish company that makes innovative plug and produce grippers that help manufacturers take full advantage of the benefits of collaborative robots. Certified by Universal Robots, the grippers are simple to program and install, with no external cables.

EasyRobotics is also a Danish company that produces a series of modular robot platforms that the Universal Robots robotic arms can be mounted onto and used for a variety of applications. The ProFeeder unit is a modular robot cell that can be expanded in three steps, from small to large, where the expansion and investment is made in accordance with production needs. The company also produces the ER5, which is a portable unit that compliments the range with a unique mobile platform that one person can easily move like pulling a suitcase.

Anders Kjempff, chief sales officer of EasyRobotics said: “Having industrial experience is essential to build customer confidence and satisfaction in our products. Something that X-STK | Applied Automation have plenty of. With rising demand for collaborative robots and easy-to-move robot cells, like our popular ProFeeder solution, I’m optimistic this will be a positive relationship. I’m really looking forward to working with the great people at X-STK.”

Ronald David, north European sales manager for On Robot and OptoForce said: “We’re excited to partner-up with X-STK | Applied Automation as one of our authorised distributors in the UK. The ethos behind both our products (collaborative gripper and force torque sensor) is to provide manufacturers with innovative technologies that are easy to understand, even without advanced engineering expertise.

“With these UR+ certified products, UK manufacturers can now automate applications that were once impossible and still be able to comply with the ever-increasing safety and quality standards.”
