IGUS offers low cost automation Made in Germany

Service robotics – for example, in kitchens and bars; in nursing homes; and in agriculture and logistics – is a market with enormous potential, because lightweight robots relieve humans of monotonous and non-ergonomic tasks.

At the recent HANNOVER MESSE Preview, IGUS presented a new modular gearbox kit for cobots that makes automation easy and cost-effective. The kit includes a fully integrated tribo strain-wave-gear with motor, absolute-value encoder, force control system, and controller.

“With our low-cost automation solutions, we enable design engineers to cost-effectively take part in the future of service robotics,” explains Stefan Niermann of IGUS. “This opens up space for new ideas in automation: for example, robots that can dispense coffee in retail shops or clear out the dishwasher at home, or cobots for the healthcare and manufacturing sectors.” Niermann emphasizes that the gearboxes are the heart of any modern robot.
