Plastics expert and founder of the Y.E.S. (Young Engineers’ Support) Program, igus announces its part as a founding member of the new university/industry partnership program REM-C (Roboticists, Engineers & Manufacturers Consortium). A non-profit organization comprised of leading manufacturers and universities, the program is dedicated to the advancement of robotic technology, as well as to inspire innovation, identify technical challenges and provide engineered solutions to the robotic community.
Along with Fischer Connectors, Harmonic Drive and Maxon Precision Motors, REM-C and igus have identified over 140 universities in the United States alone with dedicated robotics programs. Designed to bridge the gap between university robotics programs and the engineering community, REM-C will help provide these university programs with discounted pricing on components from sponsoring companies, added levels of technical support, networking with leading robotics manufacturers and educators, as well as opportunities for financial support, internships, and employment.
