Acumatica Cloud ERP system implemented
OFS International successfully implemented Acumatica Cloud ERP system. The new system facilitates the growth for our business. Management can access the information easily and from anywhere. The new cloud ERP system will allow OFSi to be more efficient, provide better services to our customers, and add a competitive advantage over the competition. Acumatica, a modern ERP solution, is highly flexible and integrates with all other software applications that OFSi currently uses or plans to use.

Okuma / ABB Automation
Houston, TX, May 18, 2017 — Okuma / ABB Robotic Coupling Cell commissioned
This state-of-the-art cell incudes 2 Okuma LB4000 CNC lathes and 1 ABB6700 robot. The CNCs and robot are programmed autonomously: the robot picks coupling blanks off a pallet, feeds them into the lathes and then delivers finished couplings onto an exit conveyor, thus eliminating the need of the operator touching the coupling.
The fully enclosed integrated cell has enhanced safety features with laser sensor technology, full communication with the lathes, and is run by 1 operator assuring reduced cycle time and high precision consistent production.
The automated integrated cell can produce 4.5″- 7″ API and semi-premium couplings at a rate of about 30 couplings per hour.
