A Digital Sense of Touch Anywhere

Forcen Inc.’s ‘ForceFilm System’ provides precision multi-dimension force sensing and haptic force control/simulation solutions.

Our Technology

Forcen Inc. has developed the ForceFilm™ System, a thin, conformal film that can be laminated, under a stiff material and its contact surface, without modifying the contact surface.

The ForceFilm™ System works by measuring strains in the underlying structure, and has a force resolution of as little as 10 mN.

The strain can be measured in multiple dimensions at multiple points, due to the array of sensors integrated into the thin ForceFilm™.

The surface or part can be of any complex shape or geometry. It is integrated with a sealed electronics module that calibrates, measures, and converts the sensing array signals to noise-free force measurements.

These measurements are transmitted by digital wired bus for simple integration, and requires no modification to the components, robot, or assembly.

High Reliability is at our Core

Game Changer: Robert Brooks, CEO and Founder, SensOR Medical Laboratories Ltd.

His love of building things is what drove Robert Brooks into engineering. During his undergrad studies in Mechatronics Engineering, he quickly gravitated towards high-reliability sectors because of the challenge, technical complexity, and the impact of the work.
