Fanuc CNC America Corporation (Hoffman Estates, Illinois) has officially changed its name to Fanuc FA America Corporation. “Fanuc FA America Corporation more accurately represents the company direction and relationship to our customers, the Fanuc Ltd. corporate philosophy and our new company symbol,” says Tomoaki “Tomo” Ishibe, company president.
The company represents the Factory Automation (FA) division of Fanuc Ltd. Japan. Its new corporate seal was unveiled in the Americas at IMTS 2010. The symbol represents the three major divisions of the parent company: FA, Robot (RO), and RoboMachine (RM). The company says its focus in each of these three product divisions will help continue to expand its leadership in factory automation solutions.
In other news, the company has announced a collaborative effort with Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) to offer closer integration between CNC and programmable automation controller (PAC) environments. The companies say the effort, which involves working together on connectivity between their respective controller platforms, will enable both to deliver integrated automation solutions to key vertical market segments, such as automotive and aerospace.
