The qb SoftHand Industry is the first anthropomorphic robotic hand designed specifically for industrial applications and tasks certified as “collaborative gripper”.It is entirely collaborative from a Hardware point of view, indeed the materials used, and the flexibility of the system allow the Hand to be safe and harmless in any situation of accidental impact.

The actuation system is tendon-driven and features a single motor to open and close the 5 fingers together while replicating the first synergy of the human hand movement in a flexible and adaptable grasp. The five mechanically independent fingers allow this end-effector to have both a large gripping surface and an adaptability not found in other grippers.

The intrinsic Logic and humanoid shape make this device perfect for all industrial testing applications where the effects of human manipulation must be verified.

The new robotic hand qb SoftHand Industry offers a plug-and-play robot-hand integration, due to its ease of use and control, and can be used whenever is required to replicate the grasping movements of a human hand. The list of tasks that can be tackled by a system integrating the qb SoftHand Industry include:


  • Flexible, Adaptive & Robust
  • 5 human-like fingers
  • 19 anthropomorphic DOFs, one synergy, one motor
  • Power grasp payload: 2 kg
