Comau unveils logistics robot


Comau has launched a new logistics robot which looks similar to the growing number of autonomous platforms currently making their way into warehouses the world over. 

Comau’s machine is called Agile 1500, and the company says it is the first model within the Comau automated guided vehicles platform.

Comau says the Agile 1500 is based on the company’s “open automation” design approach. 

It is flexible enough to be deployed across a wide range of manufacturing and non-manufacturing scenarios, says the company.

The Agile 1500 has a payload of 1,500 kg and weighs 350 kg itself.


It is battery-operated and uses the CANopen communication protocol.

Comau says the Agile 1500 is based on modular design principles and can be reconfigured in a variety of wats.

It is also compatible with Kollmorgen-based autonomous guided vehicle systems.
