Title
(EN) GECKO CARRIER
(FR) SUPPORT DE TYPE GECKO
Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure describes carriers for carrying products, connected with reusable stickiness (adhesive) to grab and release different surfaces (products). The present invention also includes different gecko carriers such as a gecko conveyor, gecko cylinder, mechanical gecko arm, etc. While the gecko's "glue" holds the product on the carrier strongly in one direction, one can easily pull the product out to the other direction. Due to the gecko carrier no extra motor or vacuum is needed, hence saving on costs and on extra parts that can be damaged, as well the shape of the product can be changed and not necessarily symmetric. The gecko carrier can come as a complete new product or the gecko adhesive can be as an add-on a belt of an existing carrier. The present invention also include a carrier that has reusable adhesive made out of carbon nanotubes mimicking a gecko foot.

La présente invention concerne des supports destinés à transporter des produits, raccordés à un élément collant réutilisable (un adhésif) pour saisir et libérer différentes surfaces (produits). La présente invention concerne également différents supports de type gecko tels qu'un convoyeur de type gecko, un cylindre de type gecko, un bras mécanique de type gecko, etc. Tandis que la « colle » du gecko maintient fermement le produit sur le support dans une première direction, on peut facilement retirer le produit et le diriger dans une autre direction. Grâce au support de type gecko, aucun moteur supplémentaire ou vide n'est nécessaire, ce qui permet de faire des économies sur les coûts et sur des pièces supplémentaires qui peuvent être endommagées et la forme du produit peut être modifiée et ne pas être nécessairement symétrique. Le support de type gecko peut se présenter sous la forme d'un nouveau produit complet ou l'adhésif de type gecko peut être sous la forme d'un ajout sur une courroie d'un support existant. La présente invention concerne également un support qui comporte un adhésif réutilisable constitué de nanotubes de carbone qui imitent un pied de type gecko.
