iGAM Customer Testimonial: Sculpturist Company Neoset Designs

Posted by iGAM on Jun 10, 2022 9:36:23 AM

iGAM works with digital fabrication studio Neoset Designs to supply robots for complex robotic milling. 

When a customer purchases a robot from us, we don’t always know what it will be used for. A business could add it to an existing assembly line, or it could be the start of increasing productivity and streamlining for a newer company. However, when we heard about iGAM robots being used to produce art, we had to know more.

Why You Should Consider Used Equipment in Your Work Cell

Posted by iGAM on Apr 27, 2022 3:44:00 PM

Purchasing industrial equipment and implementing automation is key to improving your production line and saving money.  

A work cell is set up to achieve certain manufacturing applications with optimized production. It consists of people, machines, and other equipment and tools required in your production line. Implementing these cells can lower the cost of production and increase productivity. and minimizing errors.  

Setting up your work cell starts with finding the right machines for the job. Then arrange them in a way that ensures the goods produced move seamlessly to the next stage, creating a logical progression of goods. There are several ways to set up your production line, including L-lines and U-lines. 

Work cells play a central role in making sure that your production line runs as efficiently as possible. When planning for the required machines, choosing used equipment will benefit your work cell and your budget more than brand new ones.

What are the Capabilities of Industrial Robots?

Posted by iGAM on Mar 14, 2022 10:38:03 AM

The global industrial robotics market continues to grow at a high rate and is currently valued at USD 27.73 billion, presenting a host of robotic applications.

Adopting an industrial robot into your operations increases productivity. Robots don't suffer from fatigue, nor do they slow down after working. All that is required is programming, proper maintenance, and design to reduce the production times.

Additionally, industrial robots can handle a high load capacity. They can easily lift weights that outmatch by far what we can do. While doing so, they improve workplace safety because humans no longer have to expose themselves to unnecessary hazards.

Robots can significantly enhance your production line. Read on to learn more about the potential applications of industrial robots.

Posted by iGAM on Aug 23, 2021 12:00:00 PM

Got a manufacturing company to grow? Do it on a budget with these simple tips to save on automation.

Automation helps to eliminate the need for human intervention during manufacturing processes, particularly the difficult and dangerous ones.

Industrial automation does not mean that humans are expendable. Quite the opposite: employees become responsible for supervising, managing, and operating machinery, in addition to carrying out the maintenance of these systems and verifying the end quality of the products.

The goal is to improve the factory's productivity and, as a result, its competitiveness in an environment where there is competition and margins are narrowing. Read below to learn five ways that companies can reduce costs and save money when using automation.
