Gripping objects without touching them

With the steep rise of automation and robotics across industries, the requirements for robotic grippers become increasingly demanding. By using acoustic levitational forces, No-Touch Robotics develops damage and contamination free contactless robotic grippers for handling highly fragile objects. Such grippers can beneficially be applied in the field of micro assembly (i.e. watch assembly) and the semiconductor industry, resulting in an increased production yield, reduced waste, and high production quality by completely eliminating damage inflicted during handling.
