As a global leader in the development of advanced systems and products for the industrial automation sector, Comau has signed a multi-year partnership with Tecnomatic, an Italian automation provider specialized in advanced hairpin stator technologies. The partnership complements Comau’s offer covering the entire production life-cycle from design and validation up to manufacturing systems and aftersales support.
A THOROUGH PARTNERSHIP
Integrating Tecnomatic’s expertise and patented hairpin technology—from prototype co-design and development all the way to the insulation of stator slots and the forming, twisting, and welding of hairpins—within Comau’s comprehensive electrification portfolio allows for a complete offering which encompasses rotor, stator, inverter, transmission assembly, and testing. This partnership confirms Comau’s commitment to cutting-edge solutions that help its customers address emerging market needs through the complete life-cycle, including after-sales support of the production system.
Combining their respective strengths, the companies offer customers a double benefit: a single source for fully-integrated electrical motor and transmission assembly solutions, as well as access to an engineering approach designed to meet current and future production needs. The jointly-developed systems are modular, scalable, cost effective, and digitally enabled.
“This partnership is part of a strategic long-term vision. It underscores our commitment to spearheading innovation within the electrification field and is based on shared objectives and complementary competencies,” explains Ennio Chiatante, global business development—electrification at Comau.
Gian Carlo Tronzano, electrification technical fellow, who is in charge of the project’s technological development adds, “By combining Comau’s proven know-how and Tecnomatic’s patented, best-practice hairpin technologies, we reinforce our ability to provide the market with powerful turnkey solutions for the entire electrical motor and transmission assembly process.”
A WIN ALL AROUND
“We believe it is truly a win/win/win agreement, not only in joining our respective expertise, but also in giving great support to our present and potential customer needs. Tecnomatic, thanks to more than twenty years of experience in hairpin stator technology, is convinced that our offer is a 100 percent match with Comau’s competencies and global presence, allowing us to support both OEMs and Tier1s in the automotive environment and more,” emphasizes Paolo Datore, business development manager for Tecnomatic.
Tecnomatic produces winding systems for stators of electric motors, alternators, and generators. Its experience, made of more than forty-seven years of experience, spans from general specifications to the final design and performance evaluations. The company has an internal department with full-time technicians devoted to the construction of prototypes, prototype machines, and testing equipment for the complete winding process and testing of both stators and completed electric motors, as well as the optimization of the final product for the production system.
Headquartered in Abruzzo region, one of the greenest areas of Europe, with four national parks, it counts a workforce of 140 people, with a dedicated R&D department for hairpin stator patented concept’s design and production processes.
