Non-marking gripper handles small parts
- February 26, 2020
The Gecko SP is available in three sizes; SP1, SP3 and SP5 named after the gripper’s payload in kilograms. This end-of-arm tooling can lift a wide range of flat, smooth, shiny or perforated surfaces without leaving a mark, even on high-shine surfaces. And like its larger sibling, the Gecko SP can grip perforated workpieces such as printed circuit boards, aluminum mesh or head gaskets.
The award-winning Gecko gripper technology uses millions of micro-scaled fibrillar stalks that adhere to a surface using powerful van der Waals forces — the same way that geckos climb. The technology requires no compressed air or external power, saving costs and maintenance, and can be implemented quickly and easily through OnRobot’s One-System Solution platform with little or no programming on any major collaborative or light industrial robot arm.
