Omnigrasp gets 1st prize at EuroEAP industry challenge!
We showcased at Hannover Messe 2021 digital event, at the Swiss NCCR robotics virtual booth.
We were live with our demo during Hannover Messe 21 (12-14 April).
Omnigrasp is an electrical soft robotic gripper that uses electroadhesion on movable compliant fingers to deftly and securely grasp an enormous range of objects. Silicone rubber fingers enable Omnigrasp to safely handle even for the most delicate objects, such as a raspberry, yet also heavy objects like a watermelon. Control is extremely simple: the soft material conforms automatically to the shape of the object, electroadhesion glues the fingers to the object when voltage is on.
Target markets include crops harvesting, food industry, textiles, biomaterials, assembling of high-end, delicate goods such as watches and medical equipment.
Delicate objects. Sensitive surface finish
