Gecko Single Pad (SP) Gripper
The Gecko Single Pad (SP) Gripper brings the innovative Gecko adhesive gripper technology to small-footprint applications that were previously impossible to automate. The gecko-inspired adhesive technology offers precise, no-mark gripping, even for perforated items such as circuit boards or for shiny surfaces, without the cleaning process. Named after their payload in kilos, the three different Gecko Single Pad grippers (SP1, SP3 and SP5) work with leading small robots and cobots. The compact, single-pad design allows easy workpiece accessibility, even in tight spaces. With no electronics or air supply needed, the Gecko SP is a cost-effective, true plug-and-play solution. Seamless integration with the robot of your choice.
How does it work?
Gecko SP gripper offers no-mark automation for flat, shiny, and perforated workpieces without electricity or air supply required. 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 does not mark even high-shine surfaces, it eliminates the need for a cleaning step in manufacturing processes, saving time and improving output. Similar to its larger sibling, the Gecko SP can grip even perforated workpieces such as printed circuit boards, aluminum mesh or head gaskets.
