Parallel to the decision to produce GA machines in Dalian, the company decided to offer the universal machines with the new FANUC controls.
In order to prevent any misunderstandings, Alexander Attenberger, Department Head for Universal Machines – International, was quick to point out that the cooperation is not limited to the Asian machines: "We've been working with FANUC since the year 2000. Previously, our work mainly involved our system business, however. Now we have expanded the partnership even further into the universal machining centres. This means that all the G series machines are available with FANUC CNC.
Naturally, we know that FANUC has a vast presence in the Asian market, and that is why we anticipate equivalent acceptance with customers there, but here in Europe as well, we have had repeated requests in the past for FANUC controlled machining centres, especially from contract manufacturers.“
