As the world’s population grows and urban areas expand, growing food traditionally is becoming more and more challenging. Food producers have adapted to these conditions by growing fruits, vegetables and other crops in cities on vertically inclined surfaces – a practice known as vertical farming (or, indoor farming). The machines used in vertical farms must be equipped with components that are suitable for highly sensitive environments. igus® offers a wide range of FDA-compliant automation solutions
that enable cost-effective vertical farming and offer a fast return on investment. igus® components are also maintenance-free, self-lubricating, and resistant to dirt, dust and corrosion.
