Partnering opportunity

London-based company offers their advanced robotic hand technology to a wide range of industries


The London-based company designs and develops advanced robotic hand technologies, which can be deployed in many industries with a range of applications, such as teleoperation in extreme environments and laboratory automation, etc. The company therefore offers their expertise to other companies that can potentially benefit from this technology in mutually beneficial ways. They are looking to sign research and/or technical agreements with interested companies.

Partner sought

The company is looking for the following partners: End-user partners in the following sectors: • Nuclear Decommissioning • Space applications for remote manipulation or telepresence • Oil & Gas off-shore maintenance • Automotive manufacturing • Assembly and packaging line • Warehouse-Logistics Technology partners • Vision solution providers • Sensor technologies (tactile sensors, haptics) • Immersive technologies (virtual reality, augmented reality) • Robot arms


The London-based company was established in 1997 by a group of independent robotics researchers. They are now a company of 37 engineers focusing on the development of the most advanced robotic hands available in the market that are closely similar to human hands. The company has extensive skills and experience in prototyping new and innovative hardware and systems for robotics. In addition, they can bring a full set of resources to support the offer. Their comprehensive knowledge of working with Robotic Operating System (ROS) can help support development of any proprietary software modules. For example, force sensing capabilities can be attached at every joint of the fingers of their robotic hands. The advanced grasping technology is capable of being taught a wide range of objects, combining with adaptive grasping with cloud-based grasp planning, they are able to create accurate and reliable grasping solutions. Their technology can be deployed either statically, or on a mobile platform, and can address a wide range of industrial and/or other business challenges. The markets that they are targeting including the manufacturing sector such as logistics, additive manufacturing and general automation; laboratory automation for pharmaceutical industry; and teleoperation applications such as nuclear, oil & gas, space and inspections. The company is offering their technologies for other companies that could potentially benefit from it, with a view to sign a research cooperation agreement or technical cooperation agreement.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
