Gecko Gripper from OnRobot



Gripper type



Gecko Gripper

The Gecko Gripper (SP) enables the use of the innovative Gecko adhesive gripper technology in applications with a small surface area. Such areas which could not be automated so far. The gecko-inspired adhesive technology offers precise, track-free gripping. Even with porous workpieces this technology works. For example printed circuit boards or glossy surfaces. Cleaning is not necessary. The three different Gecko Single Pad Grippers (SP1, SP3 and SP5) are named after their payload in kilograms. Of course, the Gecko grippers can be used with leading lightweight robots and cobots. The compact single-pad design allows easy access to the workpiece, even in tight spaces. Since no electronics or air supply is required, the Gecko SP is a cost-effective plug-and-play solution.

The Gecko gripper leaves no marks on glass. This eliminates the need for manual cleaning. This means a higher RoI and lower operating costs.

Seamless integration into the robot of your choice. For example Universal Robots, Nachi, Doosan, Yaskawa, TM Robot, Kawasaki, ABB, Kuka, Hanwha, Fanuc.

Due to the simple connection of the grippers and the operation and programming via the dedicated URCap (only applies to Universal Robots), the grippers are ready for use in the shortest possible time.
In addition, the connection time is reduced by the OnRobot quick-change system Quick Changer and Dual Quick Changer.

Features of the Gecko gripper
The Gecko gripper SP enables automation even with flat, shiny or porous workpieces. Gripping of the workpieces is completely free of traces and without electricity or air supply. The Gecko SP is available in three sizes, SP1, SP3 and SP5. The designation of the Gecko grippers is based on the payload of the gripper in kilograms. This allows them to grip different flat, smooth, shiny or perforated surfaces. Since the technology leaves no marks even on high-gloss surfaces, there is no need for a cleaning step in the manufacturing processes. This saves time and increases production output. The Gecko SP can grip even porous workpieces such as printed circuit boards, aluminium mesh or head gaskets.
