Railway industry automation: production process management and control

In the railway industry, our focus lies in the design, build and installation of new manufacturing processes to accomplish the required production flexibility needed for railway assembly automation and optimal manufacturing flow.

Create the Factory You Want

Process Engineering

Applying our deep knowledge of manufacturing systems, Comau collaborates closely with our Customers to identify the best solutions to reach defined targets. From process validation and plan implementation, to cost estimation and finishing, our job is to jointly identify the most efficient way to help you meet your goals.

Material Handling

The magnitude and size of rolling stock products provide an unique situation for railcar manufacturers. We can help material flow and product movement to increase efficiency in your plant.

Flexible Automation

We understand the need to have a flexible system in your plant, especially when multiple models need to be produced on the same line. See how Comau has helped develop flexible automation solutions for the railway industry.

We Excel in Developing Comprehensive Solutions

​Starting from value stream mapping, identifying weak and inefficient points, we create the process from the ground up - setting high, yet realistic targets for new lines. We are able to develop the supply chain, make the desired machinery and tools and create a process prototype. With our strong background in process analysis, mechanical and controls engineering, and manufacturing and systems integration, we can define the most adept strategies and find the best solutions for each particular case.
