Dream Sites (DS1, DS2) are parts factories for machining and assembly at Okuma's corporate headquarters in Japan. DS factories are equipped with many of our own smart machines,*1 an they are the reality of what an Okuma Smart Factory*2 can do. By utilizing IIoT, we can maintain levels of mass production even in small quantities, and thus achieve mass customization. By combining the latest IT and automation systems with "artistic" skills cultivated over a long history, our products are made with high added value. *1. Smart machines are intelligent machine tools that can autonomously judge their own processing conditions, to perform optimal machining. That defines all of the machines equipped with Okuma OSP suite controls. *2. The Okuma Smart Factory is a model of a highly efficient production facility proposed by Okuma for the manufacturing industry. By enhancing factory capabilities to the utmost, highly-mixed production batches with short deliveries is what agile manufacturing requires to cope with changes in demand.
We will continue our challenge of providing everyone engaged in manufacturing with the means to perform applications with more freedom and thereby achieve even greater dreams and hopes.
