FANUC announced on May 14, 2019, that it would build a new plant for ultra precision machine ROBONANO in its head office plant in Oshino-mura,Yamanashi Prefecture.
The investment amount is about 3.5 billion yen, and the total floor area is about 4650 square meters. It is planned to complete the construction in October 2019.
The number of units produced in ROBONANO will be raised from the initial monthly production of five units to ten units in the future.
In addition to the machining center-based ROBONANO, FANUC decided to construct a new plant in order to begin full-scale manufacturing of lathe-based ROBONANO. The existing two ROBONANO plants are integrated into the new plant to establish production lines.
