MIP utilizes FANUC controls to power a 12-axis machine that produces consistent, precision tool parts, increasing productivity by more than 300%.


  • Building a custom machine to produce precision tools
  • Need effective controls and automation to meet demand


  • Powerful 12-axis machine capable of nonstop, consistent production

  • Over a 300% increase in productivity



Moore’s Ideal Products (MIP) wanted a machine to build precision tools for model cars or personal use. They partnered with Excalibur Tool Inc. to build this machine and decided that they needed FANUC controls to power it. The result? A 12-axis machine capable of producing consistent, precision parts without requiring any downtime.

When we initially sought out to find the perfect machine, we contracted Excalibur to build that machine. We worked with them for a few months and came up with the decision that we definitely had to have FANUC controls. We went with the 30iB, which has more horsepower than you could ever imagine.
