Igus (East Providence, RI) has developed igusGO, a free mobile app that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help users find the ideal motion plastics products and technologies for their application.
The app allows users to take a simple photo of their equipment or application — whether it’s a coffee machine, bottling line or excavator. Using AI, the app then recommends suitable igus bearings, linear guides, cable carriers and other products to reduce costs and extend machine service life.
The igusGO app currently recognizes over 450 industrial applications, and its database continues to grow daily with each user submission. The AI-powered igusGO app can also help customers easily reorder the igus e-chain energy chain series of cable carriers. Once users photograph an installed e-chain using igusGO, the app identifies the correct replacement part number from 50 available product series.
