Fanuc hits 1 million robots built

ROCHESTER HILLS–Fanuc Corp. announced the production of its one millionth industrial robot.

Fanuc developed its first robot in 1974 and entered the North American market in 1982, primarily as a supplier to the automotive industry. Today, FANUC’s 200+ robot and cobot model variants are used in every industry including aerospace, agriculture, EV, food and beverage, consumer goods, medical, pharmaceutical, warehousing, and many more.

“Companies are striving to achieve their goals as they face an increasing labor shortage,” said Mike Cicco, president and CEO of Fanuc America. “Whether it’s a small shop or large assembly operation, we’re seeing more requests for easy-to-use automated solutions that will provide a quick ROI – Fanuc is well-positioned to meet those needs.”

Fanuc has the distinct advantage of using its own robots to make robots, controllers and machine tools that offer world-renowned reliability, precision, speed, and easy operation. “When customers visit Fanuc’s headquarters in Japan, they are amazed to see the highly automated assembly lines, and leave feeling confident in our ability to solve their production problems,” Cicco said.

Fanuc America is also ramping up its capabilities to meet customer growth with ongoing construction of its new West Campus scheduled to open in the spring of 2024. The new facility, combined with the existing headquarters and North Campus, Fanuc will occupy nearly two million square feet of operational space in Oakland County.

Fanuc America, a subsidiary of Japan’s Fanuc Corp., is based at 3900 W. Hamlin Road in Rochester Hills. More at
