Hannover, April 24, 2017 - Comau, a leading global company operating in the industrial automation field, will showcase its "new era of automation" at the Hannover Messe 2017 tradeshow, being held April 23 - 28, 2017 in Hannover, Germany. The event, which is considered to be the world's leading industrial show, is the perfect location to display Comau's commitment to innovation aimed at harnessing the full potential of Industry 4.0 within today's factories.
Another robotics first at Hannover Messe 2017 is the unique, "build-it-yourself" articulated 6-axis robot based on a 100% open-source hardware and software platform that encourages application sharing and expansion. Perfect for educational, entertainment, commercial and consumer use, the evolutionary e.DO robot can handle everything from executing simple pick and place movements to automating applications for business or personal use. A true industrial-like robot, e.DO has the power and flexibility to run virtually any application that falls within its speed and payload parameters.
"It's an honor to demonstrate our vision of Industry 4.0, which we call HUMANufacturing," says Mauro Fenzi, CEO of Comau. "Digitalization is transforming the industry in amazing ways, and our role is to guide companies of all sizes throughout this process, providing them with customized solutions that are fully connected and easy to use. This commitment to developing products and skills that enhance the digital factory is evidenced in the expansion of our comprehensive offer, which we have the pleasure of unveiling here at Hannover Messe."
The digitalization process will also require the creation of new expertise and professional roles at all levels, which is why a dedicated area of the Comau booth is designed to help visitors understand the new opportunities and challenges presented by Industry 4.0. Finally, Comau Academy will offer two free seminars per day - at 10.30 and again at 14.30 - looking at how companies can exploit their potential to the fullest and increase the efficiency of their production processes.
These and other innovative solutions can be seen exclusively at the Comau booth, hall 17 - stand C04. Comau showcases its collaborative robots AURA together with the openROBOTICS solutions also in the Application Park (hall 17 - stand E42).
