Comau, B&RItaly – The two companies have been working together long-term to improve the integration of robotics into production lines, so that manufacturers benefit from better synchronisation and the responsiveness of the combined system; Comau provides the robots, while automation specialist B&R supplies the control electronics. The partnership has so far resulted in 10,000 installations worldwide.

“This is the concrete result of an intense collaboration that has allowed both companies to become key players in the market, with the aim to continuously improve in technologies and grow in new market sectors,” said Tobias Daniel, head of Robotics Europe and Americas, Comau.

Walter Burgstaller, European sales director at B&R, added: “More and more companies are looking to robotics as a means to optimise production and respond to the ever-increasing flexibility and complexity of their plants.”
