TOKYO (Reuters) - Fujitsu Ltd 6702.T, Fanuc Corp 6954.T and a unit of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp 9432.T will set up a cloud computing service company for factories, the three Japanese firms said on Wednesday.

The new company, to be owned 40% by Fujitsu and 30% by Fanuc, will help manufacturers digitise their factories by offering a cloud platform that collects, stores and analyses data on machine operations and others.
