High-mix variable-volume production using all-purpose machine tools draws out the characteristics, which is necessary in order to enjoy the full benefits of such tools.
In order to maximize the characteristics of all-purpose machine tools, OKS focuses on the utilization technologies of all-purpose machine tools than on the tools themselves. In the past, machining lines consisted of dedicated machine tools for mass production. Later, computerized all-purpose machine tools appeared. OKS believes that utilizing the technologies cultivated in the field of dedicated machine tools in general for computerized machine tools allows manufacturers to maximize the potential capability of such innovative tools, such as overwhelming machining speed and the capability to cope with a wide variety of processing materials. The accumulation of OKS research and development, since the earliest days of the all-purpose machine tool industry, lies at the foundation of its spirit of innovation.
Utilization technology can expand simply through experience and accumulating technologies, information, and processes, along with the results of introducing applicable patterns. In the past 30 years, OKS developed over 3,000 types, including fixture systems for all of the 5Cs* of automotive engine parts. No other company in the world can match the outstanding achievements of OKS.
As a pioneer in high-mix variable-volume production, which is a next-generation manufacturing standard, OKS will continue to use its uniquely improved utilization technology to achieve stable, flexible machining lines.
* 5Cs of automotive engine parts: Camshaft, Crankshaft, Cylinder block, Cylinder head and Connecting rod
