The facility incorporates state-of-the-art innovations developed by the company’s machining experts to achieve high-mix, low-volume production at productivity levels on par with those of mass production. The site was praised for its comprehensive and coherent use of digitalisation, its high degree of automation as well as for its ability to continuously optimise processes through real-time data processing, the company stated.

At Dream Site 2 (DS2), Okuma produces a large variety of parts for its machining centres. All elements of DS2 are connected via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to enable real-time process tracking. This is achieved by employing Okuma’s smart factory solution Connect Plan. It provides a comprehensive visualisation of the factory, displaying each machine’s status.
