Force Dimension has earned international recognition for designing and manufacturing high precision haptic interfaces operating industrial and medical robotic systems. Their flagship products, the Delta and Omega family of haptic devices, provide best-in-class solutions that enable human operators to instinctively and safely operate critical systems.
Finely designed around a unique parallel kinematic structure the Omega 3 has been optimized for high-end force feedback. Its great mechanical stiffness combined with its embedded USB 2.0 controller enables the rendering of high contact forces. Conceived and manufactured in Switzerland, the Omega 3 is specifically designed for demanding applications where performance and reliability are critical.
The Omega 6 further enhances the capabilities of the Omega 3 base, by introducing a high-precision pen-shaped end-effector to accurately capture the orientation of the hand. With a perfectly counter-balanced kinematic design around every Degree-of-freedom, the pen combines performance, dexterity and elegance into one of the most accomplished haptic interfaces ever built. The high-precision 6 degrees-of-freedom kinematics interface features its own real-time embedded controller into a single package, adding to its versatility. This highly ergonomic end-effector makes the Omega.6 a device of choice for dental training, medical robotics, or advanced teleoperation tasks which require operating dexterous robots remotely.
The Delta 3 combines engineering modularity with the performance capabilities and control technology of the award winning Omega 3 haptic interface. With its large workspace, the Delta 3 offers an ideal solution for virtual reality theatres. Designed for research and engineering experimentations, the Delta 3 provides a flexible haptic interface where every parameter can be customized or reprogrammed to accurately meet your application requirements.
The Delta 6 further enhances the capabilities of the Delta 3 base by introducing an active wrist end-effector that captures the orientation of the hand and provides haptic feedback. The Delta 6 haptic wrist rotates around single spherical joint, perfectly decoupling translations from rotations. Its cylindrical shape also offers a universal interface for both left- and right-handed users. Designed for research and engineering experimentations, the Delta 6 provides a flexible architecture where every parameter of the device can be customized or reprogrammed to meet your application requirements.
Built on the versatile Omega 3 base, the Omega 7 introduces high precision active grasping capabilities with orientation sensing. Finely tuned to display perfect gravity compensation, the force-feedback gripper offers extraordinary haptic capabilities, enabling instinctive interaction with complex haptic applications. Currently used in the aerospace and medical industries by operators in charge of dexterous robots, its highly ergonomic and distinctive design makes the Omega 7 a device of choice for safety-critical applications.
The Sigma 7 is the most advanced master haptic interface ever designed by Force Dimension. Introducing a redesigned delta base, the Sigma 7 introduces 7 active degrees-of-freedom, including high precision active grasping capability. Finely tuned to display perfect gravity compensation, the force-and-torque-feedback end-effector offers extraordinary haptic performance, enabling instinctive interaction with complex haptic applications. Designed for advanced aerospace and medical industries, its highly ergonomic and distinctive design makes the Sigma 7 the ideal device for safety-critical applications.
