Service robots with motion plastics

Service robots are machines that make everyday life easier and fulfil services. With semi or fully automatic function, they care for the well-being of humans. A distinction is made between service robots for private use and robots for professional service. All types of technically sophisticated robots are in use worldwide. They mainly consist of vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers for households. The humanoid robots, who, for example, already do routine work in the healthcare sector without any problems, are now being utilised in the most diverse industry 4.0. For this reason, the requirements for components installed in service robots are high in order to process information quickly and perform tasks reliably. igus® has different solutions for a wide variety of service robotics applications. Whether fail-safe chainflex® cables for movement or lubrication-free and maintenance-free drytech® components, igus® ensures the optimum automation of your robot.
