By the year 2010 igm robots have increased its flexibility by offering nine axis articulated arm type robots which can be controlled simultaneously with Robot carriage ways and job manipulators having a total of 16+ interpolated axis controls.
Igm presence in India started in the year 1991 through the supply of Dumper truck frame and body Robot Welding System to BEML, which is still operational at BEML Mysore. Igm Robots are being used in India for high speed accurate, high aesthetic welding of components used in Earthmoving, material handling cranes, railways and defence Industries.
Most of the modern igm Robotic System used for Arc Welding in India, are equipped with dual Twin Wire Welding to achieve deposition rates of upto 20kg/hr. Depending upon the applications, these robots are equipped with various sensors like Arc seam sensing, tactile sensing (nozzle/pin), Laser sensor and also with online Laser Camera tracking.
Igm offers complete turnkey solutions for Robotic Welding from a single source, thereby taking complete responsibility of achieving the product quality, finishing and productivity. Off-course each of the system has a lot of safety features and provision to adapt customer specific devices so that safety and workflow are not compromised.
With many scores of systems already installed in India, igm system are fully supported through its Indian subsidiary M/s igm Roboticsystems India Pvt. Ltd. having office and support centres in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Jamshedpur and Delhi.
Igm product range is further complemented with offline computer based 3D simulation and programming systems as well as a multi axis Robotic Bevelling system.
