Components and Production Systems
Comau is a global leader in delivering advanced industrial automation products, systems and services
Comau’s competence stems from over 45 years of factory-proven experience and a strong international network of 8 manufacturing plants, 7 innovation centers and 5 digital hubs with more than 9,000 people and spanning 14 countries.
With a strong focus on innovation, Comau is committed to the continuous development of skills and know-how providing training for individuals and groups as part of its open automation approach.
Comau is driving the future of production automation by engineering lean and sustainable solutions and products. Its modular, flexible and highly-configurable products can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each customer.
Through the continuous development of products and services, Comau is able to lead the automation industry in every phase of a project: from design, implementation and installation, to production start-up and maintenance services.
The full portfolio includes: joining, assembly and machining solutions for traditional and electric vehicles, robotized manufacturing systems, a complete family of robots with extensive range and payload configurations, autonomous logistics, and asset optimization services with real-time monitoring and control capabilities.
In 2018 and 2019, in China, Comau showcased the educational robot e.DO as the helpful «assistant» of the star guest on the Season 2 and 3 of the TV show «Machine vs. Human», broadcasted on CCTV-1.
In 2017, Comau’s humanoid robot, AMICO, was one of the protagonists of the Robot exhibition
held at the Science Museum in London. Based on Comau’s Racer3 technology, AMICO is
equipped with two arms, two hands with three fingers each, a moving head and two eyes. It
features an innovative mix of technology and design, and demonstrates how the small Racer3
robot can be mounted in virtually any position, and can bend to reach the surrounding space.
Built entirely in aluminum and magnesium, Racer3 weighs just 30 kg with a maximum reach of
630 mm and payload of 3 kg.
In 2017, a Comau robot competed with Jeremy Lin and other world-class basketball players on
CCTV’s “Machine vs. Human”. In the first round of the game, Comau’s robot beat the Guinness
World Record holder of three-pointers, Hejing Song. NBA superstar Jeremy Lin joined the
second round of the game. The rules were upgraded; Jeremy Lin and the Comau robot shot
three-pointers, while another robot moved the basketball hoop. See the challenge at:
In 2017, a Comau robot began helping students learn math, art and other school subjects for
the first time. This project, developed together with various schools and institutions, is a
concrete example of how advanced technologies can be used to develop a new way of learning,
effectively integrating and supporting traditional teaching tools and methodologies. The robot
selected to work alongside students in their learning adventure is the new e.DO modular and
articulated robot, designed and constructed by Comau (in open-source) to be used for
educational purposes. Learn more at:
In 2016, a completely collaborative system offered Italy's renowned coffee to the visitors at
Automatica, the leading trade fair for smart automation and robotics.
In 2015, Italian NBA player Marco Belinelli challenged Racer, one of the latest industrial robots
from Comau, to a basketball shootout. Watch the robot learn how to shoot hoops and become
an unbeatable basketball player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPfL9YIbYeY
Robots, fun & entertainment: playing golf, fencing, checkers, tris. During exhibitions where
Comau is involved, Comau robots, from the smallest to the largest ones, are used to entertain
visitors. The aim is to demonstrate the robots’ abilities and make robotics familiar to people.
Foundation: the company has had an international reach from the very beginning. In fact, its
foundation was linked to a project developed by Fiat at the beginning of the Seventies to
construct a new plant in Russia that replicated the Mirafiori plant in Turin (Italy). The companies
supporting Fiat in the project joined forces to create a consortium – COnsorzio MAcchine
Utensili (or machine tool consortium) – which became COMAU.
