∎ Short payback period

An example from the plastics industry:
The overall investment of only €4,000 per injection moulding machine for a sprue picker paid for itself within a few months.  
The removal of sprues in the injection moulding process offers a great advantage and allows more economical production. Subsequent separation and other manual handling tasks are also eliminated.  



No lubrication necessary

Our robot components require not a drop of lubricating oil. Not only our users, but also the environment profit from this. In addition, our tribologically optimised materials produce less abrasion, as a result of which less energy is needed.
