Big CNC Machines Bring Big Rewards

Big CNC Machines Bring Big Rewards

In 2011 Alliance Innovative Manufacturing chose the path less taken by making a strategic shift into large-part manufacturing. They went BIG. While the transformation was a big undertaking it’s also brought them big rewards in just three years. Now armed with two Okuma VTM-200YBs and a new MCR-A5CII double column machining center, jobs “sell themselves” because of the unique CNC machine capabilities they have, and also because they’ve proven themselves to be reliable and efficient. more

Prevent Chatter On Your CNC Lathe With Okuma’s HSSC and VSST

Prevent Chatter On Your CNC Lathe With Okuma’s HSSC and VSST

Eliminating harmonics, which can produce tool chatter or poor surface finish, is critical for maximizing productivity. Harmonic Spindle Speed Control (HSSC) and Variable Spindle Speed Threading (VSST) are functions built into Okuma’s THINC-OSP CNC control that are highly effective harmonics problem solvers that help prevent chatter either automatically by allowing for manual RPM changes. HSSC and VSST are particularly useful when machining parts with high L/D ratios, thin-walled parts, or thin-walled parts with threads. more

The Art of Making Things Better

The Art of Making Things Better

As the CNC machining world continues to evolve with technological advancements, at Okuma the basis for all this innovation can be summed up in one word: monzukuri. Loosely translated from Japanese, monozukuri means “the art of making things better.” This is the heart of our culture and drives us to achieve the high volume of innovations we deliver to our users. While the innovations themselves are impressive, it’s also critical that we train our front-lines personnel, so they can help users take advantage of advanced technology in their shops.
