FANUC originated as a part of Fujitsu in the 1950s. The name FANUC is an acronym for Factory Automation Numerical Control. In 1972, FANUC manufactured their first computer numerical control (CNC) and have continued to manufacture and innovate in the fields of automation and robotics to this day.
Servo Repair International, Inc. is capable of repairing almost any FANUC drive, but the nomenclature of FANUC drive is complex and it is difficult to separate the different drives into groups that can be described and summarized. Instead, we present a brief explanation of the relationship between FANUC model numbers and FANUC type numbers. If you have any questions about your FANUC drives, please contact us to discuss your particular situation.
If your drive is not represented below, please call us as our capabilities are always expanding! If your drive is not a Fanuc ‘click here’ to view a list of manufacturers we can service.
FANUC DRIVE MODEL NUMBERS AND TYPE NUMBERS
Here is a table of some of the model numbers that can be found on FANUC DC servo motors:
FANUC drive model numbers each correspond to an individual set of specifications, but the characters in the model number do not reflect any of those specifications. For more information, we have to turn to the type number:
For all FANUC drives, the type number will begin with ‘A06B’. The second set of characters refers to the electrical specifications and dimensions of the drive. However, simply increasing the ‘0601’ to, say, ‘0602’ does not necessarily represent a small increase in one or more specification’s values. In this case such a change in the type number would not result a real type number.
The last set of characters signify feedback type suppported, and other available accessories. This is because not all series of FANUC drives have the same options offered.
REPLACEMENT FANUC DRIVES
If you are in the market for a replacement FANUC servo motor drive, Servo Repair International, Inc. recommends that you contact us first. If you rely only on the model number and try to buy a FANUC drive off of an auction website, you could very easily buy the wrong drive.
