Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. achieved FANUC Robotics Authorized Integrator status in 2013. This partnership with a world-wide leading supplier of robotic automation, reinforces Absolute’s efforts to help its customers reduce manufacturing costs, boost competitiveness, and ultimately improve revenues.
Through FANUC Robotics comprehensive product offerings and applications engineering expertise, Absolute provides turnkey, production-specific EDM machining systems. The relationship with FANUC America Corporation enables Absolute to enhance those systems with robots that handle payloads from 0.5kg to 1,350 kg, as well as simulation packages, application software, force sensing and infrared vision systems.
FANUC America Corporation automation technology addresses key issues facing the manufacturing industry today, such as increasing labor wage and benefit costs as well as the need to maintain production in the face of a shrinking manufacturing workforce.
The labor-related savings help companies cope with major costs from government mandates such as the Health Care Reform Act and Social Security and Medicare contribution requirements.
FANUC Robotics systems also boost productivity, allowing manufacturing operations to cost-effectively perform work in-house that once would have been sent overseas to lower labor costs.
“Becoming an authorized Fanuc Robotics Integrator carries on our company’s 25-year tradition of continually improving services and offering the latest technology to our customers,” says Steve Ortner, President of Absolute Machine Tools.
