These extended hours will be available through U.S.-based phone support for CNC machines and robots. The extended service hours are intended for emergencies that could result in costly downtime.


"Providing technical support beyond our normal operating hours allows us to respond quickly to unexpected breakdowns that occur during second or third shift operations, or even on weekends or holidays," said Bryan Henderson, national service manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. "Our customers are under increasing competitive pressures to run their operations 24/7.
