FANUC claims to have set a new world record for industrial robot production.
The firm said it has a worldwide installed base of over 400,000 robots, having doubled production in the past seven years.
FANUC said the drivers behind the world record feat have been the popularity of the FANUC R-2000i Series, LR Mate series, and the CR-35iA collaborative green robot.
Konrad Grohs, head of marketing and sales coordination of FANUC Europe, said, “Today’s milestone underlines our position as the world’s leading global provider of factory automation and industrial robotics. We’re incredibly proud to have broken the world record and we believe this is testament to FANUC’s longstanding commitment to innovation, and continually pushing the boundaries ofautomation to increase productivity.
“Over the coming years, we will build on our rapid growth to help even more manufacturers acrossthe world take advantage of the benefits that robotics and automation bring to their businesses. We believe that benefits of factory automation and robotisation will be better recognised also in European plants and will further increase the competitiveness of European industry.”
