2023 - JAPAN TRIP - Nick Axakalis (3).jpg

November 20-25, 2023

 

 The Technical Manager of NAX Machining Works, Nikolaos Axakalis, visit Japan to observe the manufacturing and the assembling lines from OKUMA. Their primary objective was to visit the central and the first premises of OKUMA (Headquarters Plant). During his stay, he aimed to familiarize himself with the new releases, multitasking machines, and automation-digitalization solutions.

Their itinerary included several significant visits:

 

OKUMA Headquarters Plant:

  • Dream site 1: Producing multitasking machines, medium-sized and large lathes, and vertical lathes. DS1 is a self-contained start-to-finish production factory consisting of a machine shop and an assembly shop, handling all processes from materials input to shipment.

  • Dream site 2: A self-contained start-to-finish production factory of small and medium-sized lathes and grinders. As the first step, operation of a machine shop has started in 2017.

 

  • Memorial Gallery: The watch the timeline and the history of Okuma.

OKUMA Kani plant: DS3 is a large machine shop that produces parts for machining centers. It achieves "mass customization" by using the experience developed in DS1 and DS2. In addition, robot and FMS automation has been put on the fast track, enabling unattended operation for 72 hours.

NAX is going to purchase a "multitasking" machine into next year to expand its production capabilities, so the trip to JAPAN (the source of technological developments) was a one-way street.

The CEO of NAX Machining Works, Jordan Axakalis, along with the Operations Manager, George Koronios, embarked on a journey to Japan. Their primary objective was to visit the central premises of DMG MORI, a renowned leader in manufacturing technology. During their stay, they aimed to familiarize themselves with the latest technological advancements, including ultrasonic and additive machines, automation and digitalization solutions.

Their itinerary included several significant visits:

Nara System Solution Plant: One of their first stops was the Nara System Solution plant, a facility specialized in designing custom-made production lines.

IGA Campus Tour: The envoys also embarked on an informative tour of the IGA Campus, where they had the opportunity to witness a production and assembly line in action.

Global Solution Center: Another essential part of their journey involved a visit to the Global Solution Center. Here, they had the privilege of meeting experts in the field and getting acquainted with the most recent advancements in ultrasonic and additive CNC machines. This encounter allowed them to gain a deeper understanding of how these technologies could benefit NAX Machining Works.

We are glad to inform you that NAX Machining Works attended the event of Greece@CERN 2022! The event took place on the 14th and 15th of November at CERN.

 

Our company was presented at the main hall of CERN by Nikolaos Axakalis, among other pioneer companies of Greece’s technology.

 

During the event, we had the opportunity to discuss future projects with CERN engineering directors, visit a wide variety of workshops, including the Main Mechanical Workshop, the Large Magnet Assembly Workshop for the HL-LHC accelerator, the CMS experiment and ELENA Anti-Matter Laboratory.

It was an exceptional opportunity to witness such level of cutting-edge technology and expertise during the visit at the workshops, followed by the long and impressive history of the first accelerator, the “Synchrocyclotron” during our visit at the museum.

 

A truly inspirational event, enhancing our already strong cooperation with CERN and paving the way for future collaborations!
