Thin glass gripper

The thin glass gripper is a special gripper for the extremely dynamic and gentle handling of sensitive workpieces in automated or semi-automated processes. It reduces the dynamic and static forces on workpiece through the optimized dimensioning and distribution of suction positions.

Benefits of thin glass grippers:

  • Significant reduction in damage rate for the thinnest workpieces (less than 0.1 mm thick) 
  • Full-surface gripping with low vacuum level 
  • Suction area made from mark-free PEEK to avoid glass surface contamination 

Typical areas of application:

  • Thin glass grippers are used in the manufacture of TFT displays, smartphones or tablets. The special gripper is also suitable for contamination-free handling without compromising downstream processes such as coating.
