Factory automation expert FANUC is celebrating a milestone achievement with the production of its one millionth industrial robot. The company, which supplies customers worldwide with a range of CNC systems, robots and machine tools, deployed its first robot back in 1974. Today, thousands of robots build new robots at FANUC’s headquarters in Japan, one of the most automated factories on the planet.

“Demand for our robots is currently at an all-time high,” says Marco Ghirardello, president and CEO of FANUC Europe. “Applications are expanding and we expect demand to continue growing significantly in the future.
