Providing Machines with A Sense of Touch

In the future, machines will increasingly take over repetitive tasks to address the global labor shortage and give people the freedom they need. 

Our F/T sensors give robots a sense of touch, enabling a new era of empathetic human-robot interaction while increasing performance, safety, and precision.

Agility meets Consistency

Resense is a joint venture between the measurement technology company WIKA Alexander Wiegand SE & Co. KG and the mechatronics group WITTENSTEIN SE. A young start-up backed by two German family-owned companies – that's what we are.

Resense benefits from professional structures, experienced colleagues and innovative technologies and production capacities on the part of the two shareholder companies. Together, the companies have been developing and manufacturing miniaturized force torque sensors at the WIKA site in Klingenberg, Germany, since the company was founded in April 2023 and are shaping the market for haptic sensors.

F/T Sensor Kit

Our miniaturized 6-axis F/T sensors measure forces and torques in the three spatial directions (6 degrees of freedom). 

In addition to the F/T sensor, our sensor kit includes an electronics box for evaluating the voltage signals and a software application for displaying and recording measured values on a PC. 

Plug & Play – the setup is ready for use within a few minutes.
