Pushing the evolution of manufacturing. That is our mission.

Since our founding, Okuma has delivered machine tools to the world and has played a part in the development of the manufacturing industry. Building on that history, our wish is to always be proactive in expanding the possibilities of a wide variety of manufacturing. We will continue our challenge of providing everyone engaged in manufacturing with the means to perform applications with more freedom and thereby achieve even greater dreams and hopes. OPEN POSSIBILITIES This means ''Opening possibilities through manufacturing.'' SCROLL

Pursuing excellence in machine tools The founder of Okuma, who from 1898 was engaged in manufacturing noodle-making machines, turned his dissatisfaction with the quality of existing lathes into a decision to develop higher-precision lathes of his own. Building on our legacy of ''creating what doesn’t exist,'' we will create design and produce innovative technologies and will connect those to the development of industry in Japan and around the world.

Professionals supporting professionals In 1963, before the commercialization of semiconductor memory, our development of the Okuma Control (OSP) with absolute position feedback encoder, which does not require a return to the point of origin, greatly reduced the workload of those engaged in manufacturing. Since then, we have continued to undertake the development of advanced technologies, such as the introduction of machine control through computer software. The shop floor is becoming more advanced and more complex with the passing of time. Delivering truly effective products to the frontline engineers— that is the goal that Okuma has always pursued.

Onward to the future of manufacturing Our history began with the step from noodle-making machines to machine tools. That has evolved into the integration of Machine & Control through the addition of electrical control technology, and then the integration of Machine, Control & Information through IT computerization. Now, through intelligent technology and the use of artificial intelligence, we are opening yet another new door. Looking ahead, Okuma will continue to stand on the frontline and take on the challenge of manufacturing innovation.
