At the Automate 2015 show in Chicago, SMAC Moving Coil Actuators introduced a prototype version of the world's first direct drive servo motor robotic finger.  It is shown here operating a Samsung Galaxy touchscreen phone.  SMAC expects an early 2016 release to be shortly followed by a robotic thumb and ultimately the first true functional robotic hand capable of reproducing work done by human hands.

The motor is a servo "partial" motor and is equipped with a SMAC rotary encoder with 15.5K counts per revolution. It achieves a high torque/diameter ratio due to the proprietary magnetic circuit design as well as the coil design.

Another larger motor (35MM) acts as the 2nd joint (MCP FLex).  It puts out a torque of 630 mNm and thus can exert a resultant force of 7N at the tip. Both motors move  +/- 45 degrees just as human joints do. 

The 3rd motor operates as the first joint (MCP Abd).  This is the joint that moves side to side. This motion is based on SMAC’s moving coil linear design and already meets the required parameters.
 
These motors have been integrated into a structure that allows them to operate and cover the same movement capability as a human’s finger. The structure weighs approximately 350 grams and is physically about 1.5 x larger than the average male finger.

The new Z3 series of photoelectric sensors is the next evolution of the globally acclaimed Z series of sensors. With the longest in-class sensing distance of 25m, the Z3 series includes a built-in amplifier that greatly improves detection performance and yet retains its ease of use and affordability.  The Z3 series through-beam type sensor has a 25m sensing distance, the longest in its class. This high power provides a significant increase in excess gain, which helps the sensor overcome interference from dust or other fine particles. The Z3 series also provides easy optical axis adjustment thanks to its large spot size with good visibility. Its four element LED also helps reduce beam degradation during long-term use.  The output and stability indicator lights are brighter than conventional models making them easily viewable from any direction.  The diffuse-reflective type features an optimized optical receiver system that minimizes the dead zone in front of the lens. This makes it easier to detect objects with a low reflectivity that pass close to the sensor, even objects with varying heights. 

Possible Uses:

Detecting large packed items on a conveyer
Detecting boxes protruding from shelves
Detecting pallalized plastic bottles
Detecting or counting boxes flowing through a process
Detecting plastic bottles on a conveyor
Detecting tires protruding from conveyor
