This paper discusses the transition stability in sliding an object enveloped by a multi-fingered robot hand whose joints are under constant torque command. We provide a new concept on transition stability, where a transition is called stable if the object is guaranteed to reach the goal section without moving away from a virtual cylinder defined in hand working space. To evaluate the transition stability, we introduce the force-flow-diagram enabling us to confirm whether the object moves to the designated direction or not. By using the diagram, we discuss the transition stability in lifting up an object to the palm under gravitational force. Simulation results show that the transition phase for a column object with concave surface is stable, while that having convex surface tends to be unstable. We also show experimental results to confirm the basic behaviours during the transition phase
