Okuma Launches New Factory Automation Division

Okuma America Corporation has launched a new business segment created to recommend, sell and support manufacturing production line systems comprised of Okuma CNC machine tools and integrated automation technologies. The new division began operations April 3, 2023, and is based at the Okuma America Corporation headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The decision to launch the Okuma Factory Automation Division was in direct response to increased demand from manufacturers seeking automated machining systems and cells for their operations to address labor shortage issues and to increase production capacities.

Solutions will include both proprietary and seamlessly-integrated automation systems including automated material loading and unloading systems, machine tending and industrial robotics, automated work piece pallet changers (APC), flexible manufacturing systems (FMS), smart manufacturing systems and beyond.
