ADHESO Technology in Optics & Photonics
ADHESO gripper technology developed by INNOCISE allows for sensitive and residue-free handling of objects in the Optics and Photonics Industry
Handling of optical lenses is particularly well suited for the ADHESO technology for a few reasons:
Precise handling of fragile optical components without residues or damage
Zero particle emission (well suited for hygienically sensitive environments)
Does not require an outside energy source to operate
The concept is biologically inspired by the adhesive forces used by animals such as geckos. Intermolecularly acting Van der Waals forces are used to grip various workpieces.
To pick up an object, gentle pressure is placed on the structure, thereby increasing the contact surface area and initiates the effects of the Van der Waals forces.
Objects can be released from the gripper using four different release mechanisms: Rotary, Tilting, Sliding, & Pressing
