The Virtuose 6D is the only product on the market combining a high force feedback in the 6 degrees of freedom with a large workspace. The Virtuose 6D is especially suited for scale one manipulations, for instance in simulation and virtual reality, but also for distant applications, such as robotic control, also called teleoperation or remote handling. It is also used with success as a co-manipulation medical robot and in rehabilitation applications, where its large workspace and its high transparency prove a lot of advantages compared to robotic solutions less suited for the job.
Haption designs, manufactures and sells hardware and software solutions based on force-feedback. Founded in 2001, the company partners with the most advanced leaders to provide professional level force-feedback solutions for medical, robotic, nuclear and industrial applications.
Haption is widely acknowledged for its Virtuose range. Available with 6 degrees of freedom, they provide 3 or 6 force feedback along translations and rotations, in Standard and Desktop format. Involved in different R&D projects, we keep pushing the technology to market new products. In a 10-year stage, 5 new products were developed and industrialized, some of which are still unique today (Able, Scale1).
Haption is a founding member of EuroXR, the European Association for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, a member of AFXR, the French association of Virtual Reality, and LVRC (Laval Virtual Reality Capital), the technology cluster of Laval dedicated to Virtual Reality and its applications.
The quality management system of Haption is ISO 9001:2015 certified for the activities of design, manufacturing and sales of force-feedback robotic systems by the company Atalia.
The MAT 6D is a new generation master arm for tele-operation with force-feedback, putting in use a revolutionary motorization technology. It offers 7 active degrees of freedom, including an active gripper.
Its simple serial architecture with remote actuation gives a light, slender design, while fitting to the habits of experienced operators.
The Virtuose 6D TAO is a derived version of the Virtuose 6D haptic device, adapted specifically for the robotic and teleoperation markets. It is equipped with an extra button box, a robotic handle and uses the EtherCAT communication protocol.
The Virtuose 6D TAO benefits from all the Virtuose 6D’s technology with answers to the needs in remote handling: master-slave setup, one hand and two hands shifting, heavy objects handling simulation.
The Scale1 is a motorized platform which allows to extend the workspace of a Virtuose 6D haptic device. The force-feedback of the Scale1 is therefore performed through the Virtuose 6D, the final solution becoming as such the haptic interface with the biggest workspace in the world.
The Scale1 is born from the will to escape from the restricted space of a standard haptic interface. In a few years, it became a masterpiece of engineering, installed at the most prestigious laboratories and companies. The Scale1 is considered the most upscale force feedback product.
The Virtuose 3D is the 6D haptic device, which means it allows movements in all degrees-of-freedom, in other words translations and rotations. Based on the structure of the Virtuose 6D, the Virtuose 3D offers the same workspace and the same level of force feedback. The force feedback of the Virtuose 3D is only happening on the 3 translations, hence its name.
The Desktop 3D is a 6D haptic interface, which means it allows movements on all degrees-of-freedom, in other words both on translations and rotations. The force feedback of the Desktop 3D only happens on the translations, hence its name.
