Cox Manufacturing Uses FANUC Controls for Reliability and Consistency

Cox Manufacturing can produce higher-quality parts in higher volumes than their competitors across 80+ machines with the use of FANUC CNC controls.


  • Implement flexible, adaptable machine controls for the manufacturing parts for a variety of industries
  • Integrate a system that is user-friendly and simplifies the training process


  • Minimal Training to Keep Up With Production

  • Standardized System Across Machines

  • Higher Quality Products at Higher Volumes

  • Less Downtime



As a reliable provider of bar automatics, Cox Manufacturing needed an automation partner to help them maintain high-volume production without detracting from quality control. FANUC is proud to be a reliable partner, providing the systems and support that Cox needs for maximum output.

With 80 machines operating on FANUC CNC controls, operators at Cox can learn, teach, and navigate the standardized controls more efficiently for better efficiency and productivity.

With FANUC controls, Cox Manufacturing has been able to more effectively diagnose and address issues that arise, with built-in alarms that highlight problems and the specific axis responsible. By eliminating the guesswork of troubleshooting problems, FANUC controls have helped Cox become more efficient at reducing downtime and keeping pace with demand.

Customers tell Cox Manufacturing that they are an indispensable supplier because they can produce necessary parts at higher volumes than their competitors. Cox attributes much of this success to their partnership with FANUC.

Ryan Beck – Cox Engineering

Reliability of my control is key. I need to be able to turn my machine on and get it running and know that, if I’ve done my job and engineered it properly, it’s going to run. With some of the other controls that I’ve had experience with, I can’t always have the same kind of reliability that I do with FANUC.
