Fagor Automation in collaboration with APLOS CNC Machine Tool Manufacturing

APLOS CNC Machine Tool Manufacturing, an enterprise in Shangai specializing in the manufacture of high-end direct-drive CNC machine tools, focuses its activity on developing, designing, and manufacturing direct-drive machining centers.

Since 2016, APLOS CNC has been working with Fagor Automation thanks to the strategic partnership signed by both companies. At that time APLOS had the know-how in linear motion and design on precision machine tools, while Fagor Automation supplied the latest generation of numerical controls for machining. They therefore share a common goal: to supply to the market the highest-end direct-drive machines. 

After more than 6 years of working together and being able to overcome a pandemic, we are still growing together.
