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.

The Future of Automation: Involving Kids in Robotics

Posted by iGAM on Aug 24, 2020 10:00:00 AM

In the age of technology, children are no strangers to screens and robots. Their education and home lives are surrounded by computers, smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

We all know the trope of a teenager trying to show their parent how to work their phone. Kids exposed to technology will inevitably be more comfortable using it and working with it in the future.

By paying attention to children’s interests in STEM and cultivating them, caretakers and educational figures can develop the robotics leaders of the future.

Affordable Automation: Robotics on Your Budget

Posted by iGAM on Dec 10, 2019 12:59:00 PM

It’s today’s Catch-22, set in a manufacturing shop…maybe your shop. Your customers are asking about automated processes, and you know that robots would make you more competitive. Of course, you want to bid on larger jobs and you need to run more efficiently. The real question is, how can you justify the investment now, rather than later?  


Technology Advancements Are Making Robots More Affordable

The same market forces that affect iPhone prices affect robots and equipment. When new technology is released, old(-er) technology gets more affordable. While humans are naturally excited by new technology, most engineers (and most customers), appreciate tried and true solutions.

The obvious way to invest affordably in automation now is to purchase used robots and robot parts. Many shops using pre-owned, reconditioned equipment find it offer benefits in addition to being affordable.
