iGAM.COM, THE MARKETPLACE FOR USED ROBOTS AND MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT IS LIVE

Industry veteran NRTC Automation launches e-commerce platform iGAM.com offering affordable used robots, parts, and equipment for global asset managers

Senoia, GA October 24, 2019 - NRTC Automation, an NRTC Alabama, Inc. brand has developed a streamlined marketplace to give industrial facilities the ability to efficiently automate their production lines. iGAM.com is the new e-commerce website to find and purchase excellent-quality reconditioned robots, manufacturing equipment and robot parts from featured brands including ABB, Fanuc, Kuka, and Yaskawa. Robots offered in the iGAM marketplace undergo an inspection and testing that includes cleaning, removing processing equipment, clearing past programming, testing axes and confirming power up. Buying equipment with iGAM will enable manufacturers to stay competitive and harness the power of automation.


"iGAM is disrupting the supply chain for robots and manufacturing equipment by adding the convenience of an e-commerce portal to help manufacturers access the power of artificial intelligence and automation," comments Greg Owens, CEO of NRTC Alabama, Inc. We've made it easy to purchase and benefit from pre-owned robots and manufacturing equipment." Facilities and engineering managers will avoid the ‘wait for quote' or ‘we'll call you back' options that exist today with other websites because iGAM's entire inventory of trusted equipment and parts is live, all on one platform, and ready for immediate purchase. With iGAM's massive inventory, it is easy to source everything from robots and robot parts to battery chargers, circuit protection, inverters, and servo motors.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
