Compact Version of Non-Marking Gecko Gripper 

Shrinking the size of its award-winning Gecko Gripper, OnRobot introduces Gecko Single Pad (SP) in three sizes for applications requiring a small footprint gripper.

OnRobot (Odense, Denmark) has launched a compact, single-pad version of its Gecko no-mark adhesive gripper. The Gecko Single Pad (SP) gripper brings the same capability to new automation applications with small footprints and lower payload.

The Gecko SP is available in three sizes: SP1, SP3 and SP5 named after the gripper’s payload in kilos, featuring ability to lift a wide range of flat, smooth, shiny or perforated surfaces. Because the technology doesn’t mark even high-shine surfaces, it eliminates the need for a cleaning step in manufacturing processes, saving time and improving output. Like its larger version, the Gecko SP can grip even 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 for greater production flexibility.

“Our unique Gecko technology automates processes that no other gripper can accomplish, and now it’s available in a compact, flexible format that offers our customers even more options,” said Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “This is a true plug-and-play gripper that fulfills our promise of a full range of easy, cost-effective, flexible robotic tooling that lets customers focus on their application rather than the robot.”

Gecko SP Features:

  • Compact, lightweight, and flexible
  • Available for 1kg, 3kg, 5kg payloads
  • No wires or air supply needed at all
  • Little or no programming required
  • No-mark gripping for shiny workpieces without subsequent cleaning
  • Powerful gripping for perforated workpieces
