Siemens and Comau offer robot control

Siemens entered into a cooperative agreement with Comau to offer the jointly engineered Sinumerik Run MyRobot/DirectControl product. The Sinumerik CNC controls the articulated robot arm directly without the need for a separate robot controller, as the operations are entirely controlled on a second channel of the CNC. This solution allows the CNC to control the robot arm drive system and contain safety functions typically performed by the robot controller. Manufacturing sectors that can benefit are laser machining, metal cutting, additive manufacturing, fiber placement and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer.
