Comau and B&R celebrate a productive partnership with a promising future
As the collaboration between COMAU Robotics and B&R continues to mature and expand, the companies can already boast ten thousand units installed and operating all around the globe. This achievement underscores the quality of COMAU products, which rely on powerful, accurate and reliable control electronics from automation specialist B&R.
