Suction Cup Sticky Foot

Suction Cup Sticky Foot Suction Cup Sticky Foot

Seanic Ocean Systems designs and manufactures a suction cup sticky foot that can be built to custom sizes or suction levels to assist in station-keeping and lifting smooth-surface objects.

The sticky foot can be deployed by the ROV manipulator or hard-mounted to the vehicle in an appropriate location for the job. Its high level of suction and grip ensures that an ROV will stay reliably in place when attached to smooth surfaces such as a vessel hull or pipeline.

While we have a variety of sizes in stock, our sticky foot can be manufactured to custom shape or size specifications, load holding capacities, and suction levels to ensure reliable performance under any conditions your ROV may encounter.
