SHOT Show 2018 – Otis Technology – Mission Critical Cleaner & Lubricant

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018


Otis Technology debuted Mission Critical MC-10 Cleaner & Lubricant at this year’s SHOT Show, a premium gun care product designed by a veteran of lubricant design and application for the aerospace industry. Mission Critical has an operating temperature of 500°F to roughly -60°F, so it won’t freeze, burn off of, or carbonize on any weapon its applied to. It’s also inert, in that it won’t react negatively to any surface, so it’s safe on all gun metals, finishes, and other materials, such as rubber and polymer.

Otis will be providing a sample of Mission Critical for us to try shortly after SHOT, so look forward to a hands-on review when that comes in.

Most of us know that Otis Technology makes gun cleaning systems and accessories. But, what most of us don’t know is that Otis also makes dreams come true. Every two years they offer the Trip of a Lifetime sweepstakes as a way to show support to our US Military personnel.

The most recent drawing was held from November 6 – December 17, 2011 at 180 AAFES Military Clothing stores Worldwide. Open to Retired and Active Duty members of the American Armed Services that are currently serving, including Guard and Reserve and their immediate family members, the trip includes travel, lodging, and expense money for two anywhere in the World up to a total value of $10,000.

Otis Technology Recognized

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Otis Technology is the recipient of the 2012 Productivity Achievement Award by Modern Materials Handling (MMH). Each year the MMH publication recognizes the achievements of three of the facilities that they have featured in the magazine within the past 12 months with a Productivity Award. Otis was announced as the Productivity Award winner in the manufacturing and innovation category for their use of mobile robots in their manufacturing operations. The award was announced in the February 2012 issue of the publication.

Otis relies on RMT Robotics ADAM™ autonomous mobile robots for on-demand random origin to random destination transport of work-in-process materials between Otis’s manufacturing and AS/RS based storage and final assembly operations.

Otis’ Director of Operations, Harold Philbrick says, “Otis has never been afraid to use technology as a means to help make our operations more efficient. We identified excessive amounts of material transportation within our process during initial stages of lean implementation and have since utilized the ADAMs to move material throughout the facility. The benefits of this implementation were recognized immediately. More output has led to shorter lead times and higher on time delivery, while improved operating efficiency has led to inventory accuracy. Being recognized with this Productivity Award shows the success of our implementation in a different aspect. We are very honored.”
