On Robot, founded in 2015, provides plug-and-play electric grippers — RG2 and RG6 — that mount directly on the robot arm, are highly flexible and are simple enough to be programmed and operated from the same interface as the robot without the need of engineers. In 2014, Bilge J. Christiansen, driven by the entrepreneur spirit, embarks on designing the innovative cable free gripper. Ebbe O. Fuglsang joins Bilge J. Christiansen to develop the software and the user interface for the RG2 gripper. In 2015, On Robot ApS is established and the first grippers are sold in Europe. A network of distributors starts emerging. In 2016, the company receives substantial investments from private investors and The Danish Growth Fund. The distribution network expands to Asia, North America and Oceania. in 2017 and 2018, On Robot establishes offices in USA, Malaysia and Germany, while the distribution network expands to over 100 distributors in 40+ countries.
