Who Can Use Our Products?

Handling delicate parts, such as precision glass or optical lenses? Current solutions require time-consuming process changeovers, causing high scrap rates through damage to parts and leave residue.

Product Applications

Glass

By changing only the shape of the microstructures, the strength of Setex GeckoTape™ can be finely tuned to the part handling operation’s required shear and peel strength, enabling the picking and placing of the most delicate parts for thousands of cycles without leaving residue.

The Technology

Setex GeckoTape has fiber tips that are in contact with a release film. This film should be removed before evaluation of samples and replaced when samples are not in use. The strength of Setex GeckoTape is dependent on the number of microfiber tips in contact with the surface and amount of contact time. We recommend applying Setex GeckoTape with firm pressure to achieve optimal surface contact.
