Integrated production of double-column machining centres
Growth in industry today is strongly supported by rising demand in the construction machinery, aircraft, and other heavy industries, and K5 (Kani Plant No. 5) helps Okuma respond to customer needs with increased production and shortened lead times for double-column machining centres for 5-sided applications, large size vertical machining centres and large CNC lathes. K5 produces high quality products in a streamlined and efficient integrated production process.
K5 has a total floor space of 20,000 m. It is a windowless building with automatic temperature control throughout, equipped with many ceiling supported overhead cranes and wall cranes. The plant’s full equipment and large space make it ideally suited for producing the most advanced machine tools. Together with the neighbouring K4 factory, K5 helps us to achieve our goal of integrated production from machining through assembly of double-column machining centres for 5-sided applications.
