Comau to Unveil Robotic Industrial Artwork on Telegraph Road

Comau will host a tour of its Innovation Campus for city officials in addition to the unveiling event.

On Wednesday, August 12, at 10:00AM, Comau LLC will host a ribbon cutting event to unveil their robotic industrial artwork in Southfield. The robot will be located at the southern entrance to the city of Southfield in the Telegraph Road median, just north of Eight Mile Road and in front of Comau's North American Headquarters and Innovation Campus.


Comau is donating the robot to help identify the city as the automation and technology leader it is. Comau will host a tour of its Innovation Campus for city officials in addition to the unveiling event.

In conjunction with the ribbon cutting ceremony, Comau employees and invited guests will enjoy their annual picnic as well as an employee classic car and motorcycle show.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
