Service/Support

FANUC has the highest quality service and support resources available 24/7, everywhere there is FANUC equipment. When you need our help, we are always available and ready to assist.


Machine tending

Machine load/unload as well as post-machining processes like deburring/edge break and inspection can all be automated.


Paint and Coatings

Automating the paint process can provide significant weight and cost reduction for aerospace.


Dispensing/Sealant

Everything in an airplane is sealed – FANUC has automated solutions to simplify the process and make it more consistent.


Flexible Tooling

Aerospace has a wide variety of very large parts – rather than large and expensive fixed tooling, flexible tooling can accommodate various parts and save significant space.


High accuracy drilling/riveting

Adding advanced vision and force sensing capabilities to our high accuracy and high rigidity robots can achieve process accuracies for the critical assembly steps beyond the most critical tolerance applications.


Collaborative assist applications

Automation doesn’t have to replace a human worker. FANUC’s collaborative robots can become a critical tool to assist manual operations.
