Easy to integrate, easy to use

Made for Universal Robots, the FT 300 comes as an all-in-one hardware package. It is fast and simple to install with free URCap downloadable software for Universal Robots.

“Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.” - Nicolas Bouhet, HMi-MBS

See how the FT 300 Force Torque Sensor helped Saint-Gobain reduce injuries and increase productivity.

Fully supported on UR

The FT 300 is designed for Universal Robots and has perfect mechanical fit with all UR models as well as dedicated software packages (URCaps).

Calibrate your FT 300 in less than 2 minutes

A step-by-step calibration procedure on the URCap guides the user through the process that takes less than 2 minutes. The dashboard also provides real-time force and moment readings on all 6 axes.

Teach your robot in seconds

With FT 300 Path Recording software, you can easily program complex robot trajectories. Program your robot faster and focus on production.
