qb SoftHand Research
qb Soft Hand Research is an anthropomorphic robotic hand based on soft-robotics technology, flexible, adaptable and able to interact with the surrounding environment, objects and humans while limiting the risk of hurting the operators, spoiling the products to be handled and damaging the robot itself.
The qb SoftHand Research is adaptable and can grasp different objects without any change in the control action, showing an unparalleled level of simplicity and flexibility.
Thanks to its soft nature the hand by qbrobotics exploits the principles of synergies in a simple and intrinsically intelligent design that is not only safe in unexpected human-robot interaction but also adaptable to grasp different objects without any change in the control action.
The combination of these innovations results in a flexible prehensile device that can grasp a wide variety of objects. The single-motor actuation makes the hand plug-and-play and simple-to-control (one single motor requires one single control signal to close and open the whole hand) and affordable

How does it work?
The qb SoftHand Research can adapt the grasp from a mechanical point of view using two configurations:
- Pinch Grasp
- Power Grasp
Mount the gripper using the connection flange provided and connect the cables as per the manual provisions.
Plug the USB flash drive into the teach pendant of your robot to install the URCaps plug-in.
Software version requiredPolyScope 3.4 or higher.
