FANUC is a Japanese group of companies that provide automation products and services such as robotics and computer numerical control wireless systems.[6] These companies are principally FANUC Corporation of Japan, Fanuc America Corporation of Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA, and FANUC Europe Corporation S.A. of Luxembourg.
FANUC is the largest maker of industrial robots in the world. FANUC had its beginnings as part of Fujitsu developing early numerical control (NC) and servo systems. FANUC is acronym for Fuji Automatic NUmerical Control.
From its inception in 1956, when company founder Dr. Seiuemon Inaba first pioneered the concept of numerical control (NC), FANUC has been at the forefront of a worldwide manufacturing revolution. Evolving from the automation of a single piece of machinery in the late 1950s to the automation of entire production lines in the following decades, Dr. Inaba initiated this ground-breaking development when he invented the first electrical pulse motor, programmed a numerical control for it and put it into a machine tool. FANUC City is situated at the foot of Mount Fuji, near Lake Yamanaka. Covering 1.7 million square metres, it is home to all FANUC’s unique production facilities. It also includes 12 research and development centres, administration buildings, staff accommodation, leisure facilities and even a clinic for FANUC employees and their families.
