Nidec CEO uses his Midas touch for machine tool unit turnaround
Nagamori himself is leading the charge to revive money-losing OKK as Nidec seeks to turn robot components and machining equipment into a new growth engine. Manpower shortages are driving the growth of industrial robots. “As artificial intelligence evolves, factories will become unmanned, and demand for industrial robots will soar,” Nagamori said.
OKK’s high-precision machining centers are not only essential for producing many robot components, but also use gear reducers themselves, adding another complementary connection.
