Robotics and automation

Robotics and automation are widely used to carry out simple repeatable tasks in industries with high production volumes, such as automotive and food processing.

IMG specialises in developing robotic systems for low-volume, high value markets like aerospace, where robots have to carry out significantly more complex and variable tasks with greater accuracy.

IMG uses a diverse collection of robots and automation equipment from the world’s most advanced suppliers, including Kuka, ABB, Mitsubishi, Güdel and Siemens.

Equipment includes:

  • Kuka industrial robots, ranging from the KR16 to the KR360, with payload capabilities of 16-360kg.
  • ABB industrial robots, ranging from the IRB 120 to the IRB 6660, with payload capabilities of 3-205kg.
  • Güdel gantries, with working areas of 12x6m and 3x3m.
  • A range of Siemens hardware including an 840D CNC controller and S7-300 PLCs.
