Okuma announces opening of Dream Site 3 Smart Factory

June 12, 2019 – Okuma America Corporation, a builder of CNC machine tools, announced the completion of the company’s newest production facility Dream Site 3 (DS3)  located in in Kani, Japan. This smart factory utilizes technology, robots and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) to manufacture vertical and horizontal machining centers and double-column machining centers to support the company’s product line.

DS3 is a self-contained start-to-finish production facility for vertical and horizontal machining centers and double-column machining centers. This is the third smart factory investment by Okuma in the company’s headquarters country of Japan, with the first two factories – DS1 & DS2 – being built in 2013 and 2017 respectfully on the company’s headquarters compound in Oguchi. DS1 was one of the first self-contained start-to-finish smart factories.

Okuma is building its smart factories based on the goal of buildingfuturistic factories that interweave automation with skilled techniques. These smart factories combine cutting-edge automation, technologies for unmanned operation, advanced IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), and workplace know-how to achieve high-mix low-volume production while maintaining production efficiency equivalent to that of mass production.
