What is Low Cost Automation?

Industrial robots have their price. The payback times for robot systems are three to four years. But for small and medium-sized companies that want to manufacture more product variants with small batch sizes, the requirements are very different. Entry into the world of automation is often considered to be complex and time-consuming. With Low Cost Automation we want to prove the opposite to you. Our goal is to make cost-effective and user-friendly automation solutions accessible to everyone. Developed and produced in Cologne for the whole world. All of this is made possible by motion plastics.


Fast ROI with Low Cost Automation

Whether an automation system is worthwhile depends not only on the acquisition costs but also on the long-term costs, e. g. for peripheral devices, adaptations to existing machines and installation costs. A crucial factor is the comparison between an automated production line and a conventional production without robots.

The benefits of automation and robotics:
  • Support for employees: e. g. through physical relief and improved ergonomics
  • Flexibility: Individual adaptation to production systems and manufacturing processes
  • Reliability: High technology reliability and low error rates
  • Speed: Handling large order volumes at peak periods

igus robot control system and software

The igus Robot Control enables a simple and intuitive system for robot control and programming. Different igus kinematics can be controlled with the control system. The free-of-charge, licence-free igus Robot Control software is integrated into the control system and thus makes use of a uniform operating concept and consistent communication services for many components of a system. Your advantage: less project planning effort and faster commissioning.
