The jewel in Comau’s crown is its Robotics business unit, which has spread the Comau name around the world and is always looking for talented young engineers. Comau recently opened an industrial robotics lab at its headquarters in Turin. The objective of RoboLAB, a partnership between Comau and Politecnico di Torino, is to establish joint training initiatives that strengthen the level of collaboration and interchange between industry and academia. The Lab is open to students, graduates, apprentices, researchers and professors interested in contributing to the development of products and applications in the industrial robotics area, in close collaboration with the company’s management.
Comau is also a technology supplier and partner in the “Robotica a scuola” network, which was formed in Turin in 2010 by 17 technical and professional secondary schools, with the support of the Education Department for the Region of Piedmont, Region of Piedmont, Employers’ Association for the Province of Turin, Education Supervisor for the Province of Turin, Turin Chamber of Commerce, AMMA (Aziende Meccaniche Meccatroniche Associate) and Politecnico di Torino. The network’s goal is to establish training initiatives that bring educational institutions and students specializing in robotics into contact with companies and other organizations active in the sector. The network currently includes 55 schools from three regions of Italy. The number is set to grow following agreements recently signed with education authorities in two additional regions.
Comau also has training initiatives in place for secondary school graduates.
