Okuma Corporation, a world leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, today announced the completion of the company’s new Dream Site 2 (DS2) parts factory in Oguchi, Japan. This facility improves the company’s ability to respond to customer needs by shortening lead times and adding value through high-efficiency production. Parts produced will be used for machine tool production and to stock service inventory. The DS2 commenced production in March 2017.
DS2 is a self-contained start-to-finish production facility for small and medium Lathes, and Grinders. This is the second smart factory built at Okuma’s headquarters, following the Dream Site 1 (DS1), which was completed in May 2013.
DS2 uses the most advanced IIoT to achieve highly efficient ultra-high-mix, low-volume production
of machine tools.back
