Compact No-Mark Gecko Gripper j
Single pad adhesive 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. The three different Gecko Single Pad grippers (SP1, SP3 and SP5) work with leading small robots and cobots, handling payloads up to 5kg. 

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.

Conveyor Lift Gates
Creating safe and fast walk-thru access
Dorner's 2200 & 3200 Series  Lift Gate Conveyors  create safe and fast walk-through access while maximizing usable space.

Counterweights create easy opening of the gate Interlock switches and a timer allow the conveyor to clear before the gate is opened preserving full product control. Product flow can automatically resume after the gate is closed.

Rotary Gripper Module EHMD
Gripping and rotating small parts reliably
The EHMD rotary gripper module is a compact module for handling small parts. The rotary motion is implemented by means of a stepper motor enabling infinite electric rotation. The gripping motion can be performed electrically with a stepper motor or pneumatically using a cylinder.

The EHMD is ideal for gripping and turning/aligning small objects in laboratory automation and the electronics industry. For example, various kinds of sample vials with up to 15 ml volume can be opened without difficulty.
