Gecko Single pad 5
5kg payload compact gecko single pad adhesive gripper
The Gecko Single Pad (5kg payload) 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 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.
- Compact, lightweight Gecko Single Pad Gripper requires no cables, electricity, air, or programming for cost-effective, plug-and-play performance
- Innovative adhesive gripper for flat, smooth, or perforated objects automates tasks that were previously not possible
- No-mark gripping even for shiny surfaces – cleaning step is not required, saving time and improving productivity
Powerful gripping for perforated workpieces
The Gecko SP can grip even perforated workpieces such as printed circuit boards, aluminium mesh or head gaskets – extending automation possibilities.
Little or no programming required
The gripper comes with pre-integrated software that is easy to install and program, so even employees with no technical background can set it up.
Available for 1 kg, 3 kg, 5 kg payloads
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
No-mark gripping for shiny workpieces without subsequent cleaning
Our gecko-inspired adhesive technology offers precise, no-mark gripping, even for perforated items such as circuit boards or for shiny surfaces
No wires or air supply needed
With no electronics or air supply needed, the Gecko SP is a cost-effective, true plug-and-play solution.
Compact, lightweight, and flexible
The small, single-pad design allows easy workpiece accessibility, even in tight spaces.

Gecko No compressed air
No compressed air requirement saves maintenance costs and provides faster payback in as little as 5 months.
gecko – Inspired by nature
The Gecko Gripper uses millions of micro-scaled fibrillar stalks that adhere to a surface using powerful van der Waals forces — the same way that geckos climb. Inspired by nature, the Gecko makes it possible to attach and lift any type of flat and smooth surfaces without compressed air or any external power, using easy gripping technology for Pick & Place applications. Since the Gecko does the lifting without compressed air or any other external power, it gives you a more efficient, cost-effective solution.
Easy deployment with out-of-the box grippers reduces programming time by 70%.
Plug & Produce
Plug & Produce design reduces deployment time from a day to an hour.
