Automation Is Surging So are low-cost solutions for ease of entry
It’s safe to say that industrial automation is a highly dynamic field that’s fast advancing across all large-scale manufacturing facilities and supply chains.
Today that growth is higher than ever due to a variety of technological developments and solutions — in everything from software and artificial intelligence to cloud computing and robotics.
Thanks to this growth, the cost of entry into automation is fast lowering for new, and small-to mid-sized companies. Here at igus we remain focused on providing component-level linear bearing parts for OEM projects.
igus is a global leader in lightweight, corrosion-resistant parts that slide with no needed external or wet lubrication. That will not change.
Where igus is experiencing change is in rising demand among new and smaller companies looking to our company for low-cost automation solutions. They want the same access to automation combined with an influx of smaller, cost-effective, and maintenance-free power-transmission products such as our drylin® which make it easier for these companies to cross the cost barrier.
