Fanuc seeks to connect factory machinery of all makes

Fanuc envisions a system that can control all machinery in a factory, even those from other manufacturers.

TOKYO -- Fanuc hopes to create a system that can control the operating states of every piece of machinery on the factory floor, including robots, machine tools and other equipment made by other companies. 

The Japanese manufacturer of factory automation equipment has teamed with Cisco Systems, a U.S. maker of communications network equipment, and others to develop the system. They hope to have it ready as soon as this fall for use in factories.
