  • Publication number: 20220032474
    Abstract: A handling device which is suitable for repositioning objects has an adhesive gripping device which includes a support structure on which at least one gripping unit is arranged. The gripping unit has an adhesive belt which extends between two holding regions and which, in a working region having a longitudinal portion functioning as a gripping portion, is wound around a release deflection element which is translationally movable relative to the support structure. The release deflection element is part of a release system, by means of which adherence of the object can be released again as required. This release system also has a release drive system, by means of which a rotational movement of the gripping portion around the release deflection element, which movement accompanies the release movement, can be caused, leading to the active removal of the adhesive belt from the gripped object.
