Needle Grippers

  • Gripping through the insertion of needles
  • Handling of workpieces that are difficult to pick up using suction
  • Handling of porous materials

Wafer Grippers

  • Grippers for gentle handling of wafers and cells
  • Integrated vacuum generation
  • Maximum process reliability

Composite Grippers

  • Gentle handling of extremely thin plastic films
  • Handling of thin glass and blank printed-circuit boards
