Flexible Tactile Solutions-Industrial Applications

TAS pressure distribution measurement system
    This system can be widely used in real-time detection of surface pressure distribution in industrial automation, including liquid crystal panel bonding detection, new energy battery test and detection, roller equipment buffing force and balance detection, machine head pressure test and balance adjustment, and automotive component pressure Distributed inspection, surface pressure and attachment inspection in the semiconductor process. This system can accurately measure the contact pressure distribution of the contact surface, display the contact pressure of the entire contact surface as a two-dimensional or three-dimensional color pressure distribution image, and can record the entire force process. The pressure distribution data detected in real time can be automatically analyzed for related data, and can be exported for secondary data analysis or development. This system can also open digital interfaces for integration, support machine self-adjustment, realize online detection, and truly realize industrial intelligent manufacturing upgrades in various scenarios. This system can realize 100% localized substitution of independent intellectual property rights.


Robot collision detection system
    The robot collision detection system with built-in TacSense unique flexible film sensor can not only play the role of safe edge collision prevention, but also realize 360° collision detection on the outer wall of the robot, collision position partition detection and reporting, collision pressure detection and reporting, and collision process recording . This solution provides important data for robot troubleshooting and routine maintenance. The intelligent robot collision detection system includes: an intelligent safety edge with built-in pressure sensor collection, and a pressure collection circuit. It can be customized for actual application scenarios, requirements, pressure ranges, number of partitions, sizes, interfaces, etc.

Flexible Tactile Solution-Consumer Electronics

TWS Headphone Pressure Sensitive Module
    At the beginning of 2020, TacSense released a pressure sensing system with sensitivity comparable to AirPods. This system can implement operations such as single click, multi-tap, long press, and gesture sliding. The price of the touch module is almost 1/10 that of AirPods, and the delivery cycle can be reduced by 50% to 80% compared with the traditional solution, and it can be shipped in batches within 7 days. Compared with the current TWS headset pressure sensing solution on the market, TacSense's pressure sensing solution reuses the TWS headset MCU master control, without additional MCU control, so it has a low cost advantage. At the same time, due to its physical characteristics and engineering optimization, TacSense's pressure sensing solution has superb consistency. At the end of 2020, TacSense will launch the second-generation TWS headset pressure sensing solution. This new solution can realize that the pressure-sensitive module is directly mounted on the SMT production line along with other electronic materials, which better improves production efficiency and improves assembly yield. At the same time, TacSense Technology also provides a notebook computer Force Pad solution, which achieves a touch effect comparable to that of a Mac notebook. With the product's flexible characteristics, the pressure sensitivity and touch solution can be upgraded perfectly without changing the internal space structure of the original product.
