On Robot is based in Odense, Denmark, and was founded in 2015 by Bilge Jacob Christiansen and Ebbe Overgaard Fuglsang. The company develops and produces the collaborative RG2 gripper, which can easily be mounted onto collaborative robots. The Rg2 is quickly installed, and can be operated without any prior programming experience. It is programmed directly in the same interface as the robot, and can be reprogrammed as desired. The RG2 lives up to all the criteria for collaborative robots, or cobots: It is safe for the interaction with humans, user-friendly and easy to install, and it is profitable and effective.
The company's enormous potential was recognized in the fall of 2016, when it received investment from several prominent investors, such as the Danish Growth Fund (Vækstfonden), Enrico Krog Iversen, and Thomas Visti. At the same time, the company received reinforcment in the form of Torben Ekvall, their new CEO.
