OnRobot A/S is a global company working to grow a world-class, one-stop-shop for robot peripherals.

OnRobot A/S was formed to address the next challenge in automation, End-of-Arm Tooling. OnRobot A/S is the merger of three companies On Robot (Odense, Denmark), OptoForce (Budapest, Hungary), Perception Robotics (Los Angeles, USA).

Our Los Angeles office focuses on the development of bio-inspired robot hands. OnRobot Los Angeles currently develops two unique technologies: 1) Gecko Gripper that mimics the gecko foot with a unique dry adhesive technology that is used as a robust, low-energy way to griping large, flat objects like solar panels and 2) Polyskin that is a pressure sensitive polymeric “robot skin” that creates an affordable and durable force-controlled gripper for handling a wide variety of fragile and uniquely shaped objects.
