FANUC ROBOTICS NORTH AMERICA SUPPLIES GM'S WILMINGTON PAINT SHOP

                  WITH INTEGRATED BELL SYSTEM 
DETROIT, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors Corporation
(NYSE: GM) has selected FANUC Robotics North America, Inc. to supply an
integrated bell painting system for its manufacturing facility in
Wilmington, Del.  The fully automated system will apply a primer surface
coat application to Chevrolet Corsica and Beretta vehicles. 
"Controlled Bell Zones provide electric servo controlled
electrostatic painting with bells," said James Vaughan, FANUC Robotics'
manager of paint and sealing sales.  "The bell painting process offers
paint finishing customers the benefits of precise body contouring,
improved appearance, uniform film build and a clean wall design that
protects bell equipment from the spray environment, reducing air flow
disturbances and dirt contamination." 
Included in the system are a nine-bell machine equipped with
ACCUFLOW, a closed loop fluid delivery control system, and BellWorks, an
easy-to-use, menu-driven software package that provides a single point
operator interface between the bell system and its fluid maintenance
information.

Mich., is a subsidiary of FANUC Robotics Corporation.  FANUC Robotics
Corporation, based in the United States, is the robotics industry leader
