"ES-Gripper,"
the gripper for connector automatic mating robots

The ES-Gripper is a gripper for connector automatic mating robots, and can be used as an end effector for robotic arms, equipped with the electrostatic capacitance torque sensor "ESTORQ."

The built-in electrostatic capacitance torque sensor ESTORQ detects torque when a connector starts to be inserted, when completion of mating occurs, and when a tension check is conducted, and can be used as a part of traceability information. In addition, the alignment correction function can also absorb misalignments of the pitch and theta direction during insertion.
