Comau showcased SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Direct Control alongside Siemens

The 16th China International Machine Tool Show (referred to as "CTMT2019") was successfully hosted on April 15.  Alongside Siemens, Comau showcased SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Direct Control in W1-A206. With Run MyRobot, the direct integration of numerical control system and robot can be realized.

At CTMT2019, the direct integration of the SINUMERIK CNC system and Comau robots was fully displayed. With the help of the Run MyRobot /Direct Control solution, robots can be directly integrated into the production environment in the Siemens Machine Tool CNC system and can be controlled by the SINUMERIK CNC system. No additional robot controller is needed, which facilitates loading and unloading, handling and even direct processing.Comau robots and Run MyRobot /Direct Control offers the following competitive advantages:

  • Integrating robots using the SINUMERIK controller and full range of CNC functionalities is available to the robot, which makes for precise path control;
  • Synchronously performing qualified tasks with machining using a robot enables parallelization of machining steps;
  • Avoiding an additional robot controller produces benefits for spare-parts inventory and reduces the space needed for the electrical  equipment.  

Except for the traditional machine tool industry, the solution can be applied in other industries like additive manufacturing, laser processing and aerospace.

As the global leader in automation and production technology solutions, Comau is engaged in technology development and process implementation. The cooperation between Comau and Siemens will actively answer the increasing market demands for Industry 4.0 digital solutions.
