FERMAT and FANUC, a terrific tag-team for the Indian market

Mr. Karimov explained the logic behind FERMAT and FANUC combining their efforts at this year’s show.  “FANUC is India’s most loved supplier of CNC control systems.  The arrangement was made with special support from FANUC, which is keen to showcase the full utilization of FANUC products with a modern, powerful and precise horizontal boring mill.”

Why a robot tool changer?

Apart from their sleek, Star Trek affect, robot tool changers have become ever more popular because of the clear advantages they bring to modern milling and machining operations.  Below are two videos highlighting how quick they can be, even in relation to an ATC, or thrashing around PLC programmers.
