Where A Machine Is Made Matters
Where a machine tool is built does matter. While the temptation to chase the lowest labor rates in the world exist, does the choice of cutting corners on price really offset the possibility of quality control. FANUC RoboCut wire EDMs are continually made in their facility in Japan while maintaining the reputation FANUC has built over the years for reliability.
By keeping manufacturing under their roof, FANUC maintains their most stringent quality procedures as well as their constant push for the latest and greatest technology allowing FANUC to continually provide the fastest and most reliable auto wire feeder on the market.
