The igm reputation as a specialist for large-scale projects is based on a steady stream of major contracts from the heavy engineering industry since the 1980s. Indeed, the floor track systems of up to 100 m in length are designed to cater for the special requirements of this industry. Components with larger than standard dimensions such as those found in bridge construction and ship building for example, are manufactured using portal welding units capable of taking components of up to 25 m in width and 8 m in height.
The robotic systems are utilized amongst others for manufacturing excavators, railway wagons and locomotives, for boiler making, the construction of gantry cranes as well as for bridge construction and ship building.
