Adhesion Gripping Technology​

Adhesive grippers ADHESO

Customized adhesive grippers for your application

The bionically inspired ADHESO gripper technology  developed by  INNOCISE   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:

  1.  Rotary movement
  2.  Tilting movement
  3.  Sliding movement
  4.  Pressing

Alternatively, it is also possible to equip the gripper with an active wiper, which prevents mechanical stress on the workpiece at the placing position.
