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.

- By connecting it to the robot, automation of connector insertion and mating are realized
- The gripper can detect the insertion force and be used as a part of traceability information
- The gripper is equipped with an alignment correction mechanism
Torque sensor series
Electrostatic Capacitance Torque Sensor "ESTORQ"
ESTORQ is a sensor for detecting and controlling the torque generated during the rotation of various robots and automatic assembly equipment. By adopting an electrostatic capacitance method, we have been able to significantly reduce costs, as well as freely make design choices in order to meet customers' needs.
Electric hand “ES-Hand”
The ES-Hand is an electric hand that can be used as an end effector for robotic arms, equipped with an electrostatic capacitance torque sensor "ESTORQ." It has a wide gripping force range and can even grip soft materials like pudding.
