Okun Koneistuspalvelu and the coronavirus pandemic

Coronavirus and COVID-19 disease have evolved into a global pandemic. The human and economic costs of the virus are huge and the global situational picture changes very rapidly.

Oku’s production continues to be stable

The coronavirus has so far caused no cuts in Oku’s production. We do everything we can to take care of our customers’ orders and of our security of supply. If any availability issues arise with regard to components or material, we will inform about the situation for the affected customers.

Implementation of investments has progressed as planned

In the end of last year, Oku communicated on new investments in machines and automation. The implementation of the investments has progressed as planned; 2-spindle multi-axe CNC lathe Mazak Hyper Quadrex 150MSY and 5-axe Tsugami CNC precision automatic lathe HS38M-5AX are already in production. We are currently installing a 5-axe Mazak Integrex i-200 ST lathe centre with a portal robot cell.

In addition to new investments, we have also implemented an almost new Tsugami BO38TE precision automatic lathe with a total of 11 programmable axes.

All above-mentioned machines are also suitable for unmanned production.

News about fair events

Hanover Industry Fair and ILA Berlin Space and Aviation Exhibition included in Okun Koneistuspalvelu’s spring fair calendar have been cancelled due to the pandemic. Year 2020 fair calendar still includes Tampere’s Subcontracting Trade Fair from 22 to 24 Sep and ELMIA Subcontractor Fair in Jönköping, Sweden, from 10 to 13 Nov.

Attention to risk management

Oku contributes in every way possible to prevent the spread of the virus and to take care of its staff, customers and cooperation partners. We closely follow authority communications and instructions as well as take preparatory actions in occupational safety, company security and risk management.

Hygiene level has been raised

Oku pays special attention to clean premises in all situations. Due to the coronavirus, we have further elevated our level of hygiene.

Minimising external contacts

In order to keep our staff safe, to protect our security of supply and to prevent the spread of the virus, Oku does not receive any visitors until further notice. Maintenance necessary for our operation is agreed case-specifically.

Prevention measures for the common good

Measures to tackle the coronavirus protect our employees, customers and cooperation partners. The measures are also intended to secure the vital functions of the society. Oku addresses virus prevention measures with responsibility and care.
