iguverse: the industrial metaverse of igus

We bring sales and engineering into virtual reality

Immerse yourself in the virtual sales and engineering world of the iguverse. Discover new and fascinating ways to save time, money and resources in product development, optimisation and maintenance. The iguverse will simplify your engineering! Use the iguverse as an efficient and user-friendly platform for sustainable product development and fast prototype production. Benefit from two main advantages:

  • Advantage 1: distance no longer matters. Members from all over the world can meet as avatars in digital space and exchange ideas.
  • Advantage 2: projects become clearer and more tangible from Day 1.
The first customers are already in the iguverse. Become a beta tester, too, and develop your machines and systems in the iguverse! Contact us and make an appointment now.

Experience the iguverse - with these videos and your personal tour

Simplify your engineering with the iguverse and develop your machines and systems in the virtual world using digital twins. Get started with the next generation of sales and engineering! The following two videos will give you an initial insight into this. Experience the iguverse live now and book an appointment for your tour through the igus metaverse.
Working in virtual reality on digital twins of machines, systems and products, e.g. in automotive production, in the oil and gas industry or with robots. From anywhere in the world, without travelling.
The iguverse can also be an approach with a lot of potential for future sales. For example, salespeople and customers could put on VR glasses during customer visits and immerse themselves in the iguverse.

Next-level engineering: implement systems and machines faster and more efficiently in the future

The iguverse enables the next generation of engineering - simple, efficient and fast! A possible application scenario for virtual collaboration could look like this:
Engineer in prototype production

"As an engineer, I want to optimise our prototype production and make it more sustainable. I explore the iguverse, an engineering platform in the metaverse. With VR glasses, I enter the virtual reality of igus, work on projects digitally and network with colleagues to save time, costs and CO₂, in order to visualise problems clearly and work out solutions quickly. I find 3D models for my applications in the right machine and industry world. Together with igus experts, I develop prototypes and carry out feasibility studies. Augmented reality helps me identify design flaws at an early stage. This also saves time, travel cost and resources. Colleagues and machine users can exchange ideas in the iguverse, practise and support service technicians with repairs."

Further possible applications of the igus metaverse

In the iguverse, customers, engineers, project managers and decision-makers will come together in future as avatars in the digital space. There, you use collaborative engineering to implement entire projects, from the idea to the finished product. Faster and smoother than is possible in the physical world alone. 
  • Plan machines, systems and vehicles.
  • Find the right components quickly.
  • Develop products digitally with igus experts.
  • Get virtual assistance with repairs.
  • Train customers or employees in the use of machines thanks to digital twins.
  • Let 1:1 feasibility analyses with 3D models support you in product development.
  • Identify weak points at an early stage and optimise your design - without physical prototypes, only with virtual commissioning.
  • Present your company, your services or your products on our platform and save on your own metaverse developments.

iguverse with digital twins of lift systems and hydraulic garages from h+b technics

Jan Olfenbüttel, Head of Sales & Marketing at h+b technics

"Thanks to the digital twins of our lift systems and hydraulic garages in the iguverse, we can bring our products to life anytime, anywhere, and also show them in operation. This is hardly possible in real everyday life, e.g. at trade shows. At the same time, we even save costs. Instead of investing in expensive trade show models, we can easily and flexibly integrate new 3D models in virtual reality and thus show much more even without a large stand area."

Metaverse: my first experience with the iguverse

Angela Struck, freelance journalist developmentscout: "In addition to Siemens and Deutsche Bahn, the Cologne-based plastics specialist igus is also experimenting with the industrial metaverse. The resulting digital parallel universes could have a disruptive effect on sales, engineering and service, just like the introduction of assembly lines or robotics once did. I went straight into the iguverse and felt like the lead actress in James Cameron's not-yet-invented blockbuster 'Avatar Industry'."

Dina Reit, CEO of SK LASER, explores the iguverse

Dina Reit, Managing Director of SK LASER, Family Entrepreneur of the Year 2022

"We spent about an hour in the igus parallel universe, walked through cars with built-in energy chains and saw an energy chain in action on a virtual drilling platform. With our virtual hands, we were able to make the products larger and smaller and examine them in detail. igus is thus taking the first steps towards metaverse in mechanical and plant engineering, and this has great potential for product presentations."

Would you also like to gain experience with virtual reality? Optimise your own product development without having to invest in infrastructure?

We are opening up our iguverse as a collaboration platform for augmented reality (XR) to promote the development of top engineering with greater sustainability and drastically shorter development cycles. We are at your side as a development partner and will provide you with digital twins of all our products in the iguverse in future. You can use these directly in virtual engineering when you work together with your customers, partners and developers on your machines, systems and vehicles. Share resources and information and learn from each other. Utilise the possibilities of the virtual world to permanently improve your products with a small workforce and quickly adapt them to the needs of your customers.
Discover our iguverse. Experiment with the digital parallel universe and see the benefits for yourself. Don't lose touch with the future of engineering. Test the new possibilities of virtual commissioning, digital twins and much more now - without having to bear the high costs of a VR infrastructure yourself.

Where will we be working in future? Maybe just everywhere?

Digital parallel universes not only captivate millions of fans of computer games like Fortnite. The metaverse also has the potential to revolutionise how businesses and customers work together. It seems as if virtual reality is growing out of its niche existence among gamers. Is that just a short euphoric trend or does the virtual world have what it takes to conquer other areas, such as digital sales, as a modern and customer-oriented channel?

See for yourself and immerse yourself in the iguverse now! In the video we show you how to do this in three simple steps: prepare VR glasses, set up VR glasses, navigate in the iguverse.
