Focusing on the field of robotics, NDT released Force and torque sensors


New Degree Technology(NDT), with more than ten years of pressure sensing technology accumulation, has always focused on independent research and innovation, focusing on product application market development to build core competitiveness.


Recently, based on the principle of resistance strain, NDT has launched the "Force and torque sensors" product line, including torque, six-dimensional force etc, focusing on applications such as robots, industrial automation and medical equipment, empowering smart production and life.


NGF series "Force and torque sensors"

The NGF series "Force and torque sensors" provides different structural designs and a variety of range options, which can meet the needs of more scenarios.

Among them, the force sensor can measure the force on the object in real time and convert it into a relevant electrical signal output. According to different structures, various models can be distinguished.


Torque sensors can detect torsional moments on various rotating or non-rotating mechanical parts, and have the characteristics of high precision, small size, good temperature characteristics, and strong overload resistance.



The NGF series sensor is based on the principle of strain gauge resistance, and realizes the force detection by detecting the resistance value change caused by the tensile or compressive deformation of the material under force.


Compared with other principles, strain gauge pressure sensors can measure small strains, have higher precision, sensitivity and response speed, and have better durability and stability, can work stably for a long time.

Application Scenario

The force and torque sensors is an indispensable core component in intelligent production and life, and is widely used in many fields such as robots, medical equipment, industrial automation equipment, and aerospace.

1. Robot

Endow intelligent robots with "tactile" and "force sense"

During the working process of the intelligent robot, the sensor can provide force-sensing information for the movement of the robot, endow the robot with "tactile" and "force-sense", and ensure the stability and safety of the robot's work.


Specifically, there are three main application scenarios: 

Bionic joints. The force on the mechanical arm is detected by the six-dimensional force sensor and the torque sensor. 

Dexterous hands. The sensor detects the force between the robot hand and the object when grabbing the workpiece to achieve precise control. 

Electronic skin. 

Using NDT's unique flexible pressure sensor, it can sensitively sense the touch force and ambient temperature, and make corresponding actions or facial expressions accordingly.

The release of the force and torque sensors sensor also announced that NDT will provide a one-stop force-related sensor solution for the robotics industry, helping the industry to develop intelligently.

2. Medical devices

Auxiliary diagnosis and treatment

In the medical field,the force and torque sensors sensors also have a very wide range of applications. For example, in the infusion pump, the sensor can be used to detect the pressure of the tube wall in real time, monitor and control the infusion status, and give an alarm to the abnormal pressure value to detect the blockage of the infusion pump in time to ensure the safety of the infusion process.


In syringe pump applications, the sensor can be used to detect the thrust of the syringe handle in real time, from arrival to precise control of the dosage. It has the characteristics of small dose administration and high control precision, which improves the efficiency and flexibility of administration, and at the same time greatly reduces the work intensity of medical staff.


3. Industrial automation equipment

​Help efficient production

In modern industrial automation, force measurement and control is a very common and important process, which widely exists in the whole process of production, load monitoring, quality inspection and so on.


Through the force sensor, various operating forces in the production process can be measured and controlled in real time, which plays a role in ensuring safe production. The loads and pressures experienced by mechanical equipment can be monitored to avoid overload and excessive wear. It can also be used to test various mechanical properties such as product strength, stiffness, and toughness to ensure product quality.


With the continuous development and maturity of various technologies, the application scenarios of torque sensors will continue to expand and deepen. While focusing on the core business, NDT accelerates the expansion of multiple markets and applications, and provides NDT strength for all walks of life.
