Comau partners with Siemens to digitalise robotics and automation in industry


Comau has partnered with Siemens to meet the growing interest in Industry 4.0 digitalization solutions.

The companies will combine their respective products and strengths to offer digitalisation solutions to enterprises.

Comau will use its wide range of robot arms, while Siemens will offer its smart solutions for handling and processing with robots. 

The companies have developed a portfolio for the full integration of Comau robotic arms into the Siemens SiNumeric system.

Through this technology, the SiNumeric 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 operated from the SiNumeric.

Applications for the Siemens-Comau solution include:

  • additive manufacturing;
  • tape laying;
  • fiber placement;
  • machining with robots;
  • nondestructive testing; and
  • a range of others.

These applications can now be “easily and cost-effectively” implemented by companies of all sizes, says Comau.

In addition, the commitment to open-engineering by both companies is mirrored by the openness of the SiNumeric system, which allows the implementation of customized features even at a level of high application complexity.
