Comau Group (Germany) – Comau and Siemens launch a common portfolio named “SINUMERIK Run MyRobot/Direct Control”
Comau, a leading global company in the development and implementation process and technology solutions for sustainable automation and production, has joined forces with Siemens to meet the growing interest in Industry 4.0 digitalization solutions. Leveraging Comau's wide range of robot arms and Siemens' smart solutions for handling and processing with robots, the companies have developed a dedicated portfolio for the full integration of Comau robotic arms into the Siemens SINUMERIK system. Through this technology, the SINUMERIK control can be used as a stand-alone robot controller without the need for external or embedded robot controllers.
At EMO 2017 the visitors will have the opportunity to witness how the integrated Comau robot, as digital twin, is easily operated from the SINUMERIK.
Applications, including: additive manufacturing, tape laying, fiber placement, machining with robots, nondestructive testing and more, can now be easily and cost-effectively deployed by companies of all sizes. In addition, the commitment to open-engineering by both companies is mirrored by the openness of the SINUMERIK system, which allows the implementation of customized features even at a level of high application complexity.
A worldwide leader in industrial automation technologies, Comau's solutions are designed to help companies improve their competitiveness and achieve their manufacturing goals. Joint development activities and technology partnerships, such as the collaboration agreement with Siemens, are solid examples of Comau's on-going commitment to innovation and its advanced approach to collaborative, digital manufacturing.
