Electro-adhesion is the new technology for constructing gripping solutions that can be used for automation of pick and place of a variety of materials. Since the technology works on the principle of parallel plate capacitors, there is an inherent ability to store charge when high voltage is applied. This causes an increased release time of the substrate when the voltage is switched off. This paper addresses the issue of residual charge and suggests ways to overcome the same, so that the performance of the gripper can be improved in a cycle of pick and release. Also a new universal equation has been devised, that can be used to calculate the performance of any gripping solution. This equation has been used to define a desired outcome (K) that has been evaluated for different configurations of the suggested electro-adhesive gripper.
