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.
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.more
One of the best ways to bridge the skills gap is to ensure that skilled workers who are already in place are using the latest technology enhancements. To speed users along this path, Delcam recently unveiled a new series of YouTube videos that provide handy tips and tricks for its PowerMILL and FeatureCAM CAM systems. These how-to videos will make you a Delcam “power user” and streamline your process of taking designs from the concept stage into highly efficient production.
In the past, acquiring non-perishable tooling after a major machine purchase required a large expenditure – one that was often uncomfortable for companies with limited budgets. That’s why, for leaders focused on conserving costs and improving productivity, an innovative new system from WTO (a member of Partners in THINC) can be a game-changer. QuickFlex®, a quick change system for driven toolholders, saves a substantial amount of money in out-of-pocket tooling costs.
Please join us in welcoming Bucci Industries as a member of Partners in THINC. Bucci will work with Okuma and other partners to provide integrated bar feeder and gantry loader solutions through their IEMCA division. IEMCA’s VIP-80IC model bar loader integrates perfectly with Okuma’s THINC®-OSP CNC control, enabling the lathe to control bar loader operations.
Have you ever thought about an automation cell, but hesitated because of potential implementation costs? There’s not always a need to build these systems from scratch.
