Automation has seen a rapid increase in usage in recent years across a multitude of industries. From packaging and automotive to medical & laboratory and food & beverage, automation - and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) specifically - have become essential in saving both time and money. When it comes to transporting goods and materials quickly and reliably, AGVs are the best solution.
At igus®, we offer a wide range of bearings and components for your AGVs, from plastic plain bearings and slewing rings, to linear actuators and motors. Each of these products, and the many more not listed above, use our self-lubricating plastics. These provide numerous advantages over their metal counterparts, including clean, grease-free operation at a lighter weight and reduced volume. For a number of these parts, we offer a variety of material types, including FDA-compliant and versions resistant to high temperature and/or chemicals. If you are looking for a fully assembled robot, please visit our automated manufacturing page.
For assistance with linear products, including linear bearings & slides, actuators, lead screws & nuts, as well as strain wave gears, gearboxes, and motors, please contact us by phone at (800) 521-2747 or fill out the contact form below.
