Vertical farming with igus® motion plastics

The machines used in vertical farming usually work in a highly sensitive environment, and the demands on the components installed are correspondingly high. With its wide range of maintenance-free products, igus ensures a reliable operation. By dispensing with external lubricants, low-abrasion and FDA-compliant materials and the highest hygiene standards, contamination of the crops is prevented. In addition, our motion plastics score points with their resistance to corrosion and dirt. Our Low Cost Automation systems enable cost-effective farming throughout the year and a fast return on investment.

Advantages of vertical farming

  • Saving space by freeing up traditional agricultural areas
  • Harvest throughout the year, independent and flexible
  • Low transport and storage costs
  • Water saving due to closed cycles
