Continued double-digit growth for Comau Robotics

For the third consecutive year, the positive growth trend continues for the Italian manufacturer

Comau continues its growth in the Robotics sector, and for the third consecutive year has recorded a double-digit increase in articulated robot sales.


Similarly, the results in individual industries reflect the global growth trend, which is even more significant as it underlines the success of Comau's market penetration strategies.

In particular, the increase in 2015 was equally distributed within Automotive and General Industry, the latter of which is where Comau has been investing both at a commercial level and at a product level. The growth, in addition to China, was particularly concentrated in Eastern Europe and within the NAFTA region.

In the APAC region the company has recorded a significant increase in sales thanks in part to the establishment in China of both production facilities and one of the most cutting-edge Innovation Centers within the Comau global network.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
