Find out how manufacturers across The Americas use their Okuma equipment to increase productivity, reduce costs, improve quality and solve manufacturing problems. Case studies, testimonials, newsletters, blogs and whitepapers can be found here to help you with your own challenges.
Wondering what to get that special CNC machinist in your life for the holidays? A new machine tool would be sure to impress. But if that’s over budget, don’t despair! We put the challenge to our team here at Okuma America and came up with some top gift picks, all under $50. You don’t have to break the bank to show your friends, family and colleagues how much you appreciate their geeky pleasures. And you might even see some ideas to put on your own list.more
To err is human. To prevent error, divine. With the complexity of today’s CNC machine processes, the risk of error is higher than ever before. Why take chances? Okuma’s Collision Avoidance System (CAS) prevents human error when it comes to collisions, and puts your mind at ease. CAS creates a 3D model of Okuma CNC machines, blanks and tooling. Then our THINC®-OSP CNC control is able to create a virtual machine model. Thus armed, CAS employs a Virtual Modeling application that runs seconds ahead of your actual cutting. When a problem arises, this allows time for the machine to be stopped before a costly collision – saving you time and money.
Okuma has a long history of spearheading innovations in CNC control technology. We’ve been doing it for more than 50 years, so continuous evolution is nothing new to us. The new THINC®-OSP-P300 represents a huge breakthrough however – one that is more revolutionary than evolutionary. The key is the radical shift from a mode-based to a process-based user interface. By enabling both process efficiencies and user innovation, the OSP-P300 revoltionizes your world and puts you in control.
At EMO 2013 in Hanover, Germany, Partners in THINC member KUKA Robotics presented flexible solutions for the automation of CNC machine tools. Due to global competition, it is necessary to increase the operating time of CNC machine tools still further. Automation of machine tools with KUKA robots boosts productivity and reduces unit costs. In many cases, the integration of a robot with the machine tool pays for itself in less than a year.
