GRAB & GO – GENTLE BUT FIRM
GRIPPING INSPIRED BY NATURE
- No compressed air requirement saves maintenance costs and provides faster payback in as little as 5 months.
- Precise, no-mark gripper technology increases productivity in pick-and-place tasks.
- Innovative gecko technology enables gripping of flat, porous objects such as PCBs to extend automation capabilities.
- No requirement for external air supply reduces noise and dust.
The gecko gripping technology was originally developed in the labs at NASA as a tool for collecting defunct satellites and other space trash, as well as applications on the International Space Station. From these lofty beginnings, the Gecko Gripper serves more earthbound purposes – carefully picking up smooth-surfaced items, or items with holes in their surface which cannot be picked up by a traditional vacuum gripper.
