Since 1956, Fanuc has contributed to the automation of machine tools as a pioneer in the development of computer numerical control equipments. In 1972 Fanuc developed its first industrial robots, which have further enhanced factory automation. Fanuc technology has contributed to a worldwide manufacturing revolution, which evolved from the automation of a single piece of machine to the automation of entire production lines. Fanuc develops better and more reliable products into the twenty-first century.
