Adhesive grippers ADHESO
Customized adhesive grippers for your application
The bionically inspired ADHESO gripper technology is based on the principle of adhesion and uses intermolecularly acting Van der Waals forces to handle various workpieces.
Benefits of ADHESO Technology
The advantages of ADHESO gripper technology are revolutionary:
Gripping without residue
Sensitive gripping without mechanical force
No external energy supply
Our application experts take advantage of these benefits and work alongside SCHUNK to develop customer-specific adhesive grippers with ADHESO gripper technology. Due to the high variability of the adhesive structures, grippers with ADHESO technology can be directly tailored to the requirements of your application.
Common Application Areas
Grippers with ADHESO technology
The gripper solutions that are possible with ADHESO are as diverse as the applications themselves. By varying the material, topography and miniaturization, the gripper can be individually tailored to the different requirements of your application.
We offer four standardized ADHESO gripper pad sizes with matching ISO flange adapter, which can already be used to implement a large number of gripper applications quickly and cost-effectively. On request, we can also supply a customized ADHESO gripping solution directly tailored to your application.
Benefit from the advantages of ADHESO gripper technology now:
Low operating costs due to energy-efficient gripping without an additional energy supply
Gripping without visible residue for sensitive workpieces
No particle emission, making it suitable for clean room applications
Versatile in use and ideally adapted to different ranges of applications
ADHESO Gripping Process
To pick up the workpiece, gentle pressure is placed on the structure, which increases the contact surface area and applies the effects of the Van der Waals forces. To release the gripper, it can be separated from the workpiece by means of four release mechanisms:
Alternatively, it is also possible to equip the gripper with an active wiper, which prevents mechanical stress on the workpiece at the placing position.
