Fanuc Computer Numerical Controls CNC

History of Fanuc CNC Control Products, Computer Numerical Control Products Selection Guide from 1985 to 1997.

A powerful force in CNC and factory automation. In 1987 two of the world’s leading suppliers of factory automation products, General Electric and FANUC LTD of Japan joined forces to serve the worldwide factory automation market. The joint venture company, GE Fanuc Automation Corporation, is committed to provide the worlds highest quality and best value in computer numerical control (CNC). And to create products which work as well together as they do alone. Today’s intensely competitive world challenges to achieve higher quality, tighter development schedules, and lower cost production. The GE Fanuc line of CNC products helps to realize these goals. Here is run down of the capability of the early range of Fanuc products
