Okuma Corp. has completed 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 also to stock service inventory.

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. The DS1 was one of the first self-contained start-to-finish smart factories.

DS2 uses the most advanced IIoT to achieve highly efficient ultra-high-mix, low-volume production of machine tools.
