Turn-Cut

Machining optimization for the most challenging parts

Designed for applications that would traditionally require a CNC lathe to turn a feature, Turn-Cut eliminates the need to purchase such special-purpose machines, along with any additional tooling, fixtures, or add-on components. In many cases, a part’s size, shape, or weight makes it impossible to set up on a lathe anyway; but with Turn-Cut, large, awkward, and unbalanced parts remain stationary as a new tool path is created.

Turn-Cut, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Provides process optimization capabilities without a large investment in specialized tooling, attachments, or secondary machines
  • Makes the machine perform more consistently and accurately, even in applications that don’t require Turn-Cut capability
  • Reduces set-up times because no additional fixturing is needed and parts don’t have to be moved to separate machines
  • Eliminates the need for expensive index chucks used for the manufacturing of small valves or tees
  • Frees up more floor space because a secondary machine is not needed to complete turning applications

SUPER-NURBS

High accuracy, even for complex surfaces

With our Super-NURBS feature, the OSP control projects a predetermined tolerance band that creates a spline considered to be the best fit for the job. This eliminates redundancies and allows for a smoother tool path in 3D settings. Crunching the data allows us to speed up movements—but the highest level of accuracy is maintained to create quality surface finishes.

Super-NURBS, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Adds a higher degree of accuracy for surfaces with complex shapes or large changes of diameter within a short linear distance
  • Eliminates redundancies, which allows for a smoother and swifter tool path
  • Guarantees high machining accuracy and finish quality in half the time it takes conventional technology
  • Grants a greater level of control—and effectively shortens—the feedback loop
  • Increases throughput since raw stock is processed in shorter timeframes
  • Potentially eliminates the long and costly step of hand finishing, polishing, or grinding

3D VIRTUAL MONITORING

Simulated success leads to error-free cutting

Our 3D Virtual Monitoring (3DVM) software provides accurate, 3-dimensional simulations based on the machine and program you’re using. That way you can safely, quickly, and accurately produce the desired part without worrying about the small errors that can have a huge impact on overall productivity. Ultimately, our 3DVM feature eliminates costly repairs by testing and editing programs before they ever hit the machine.

3DVM, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Qualifies tool lengths and holder types
  • Checks and confirms synchronization codes during simultaneous processes
  • Identifies programming errors before they cause damage
  • Eliminates costly machine downtime for parts programming
  • Helps you avoid machine repair costs
  • Saves significant time and cost for first part prove-out
  • Duplicates machine alarms on PC so you can address issues at your desk
  • Uses the built-in utility program to interact with the machine model
  • Creates/manages model definition files offline before transferring data to machine tool


ADVANCED ONE-TOUCH IGF

Intuitive programming, right on your machine tool

Advanced One-Touch (AOT) lets you easily create a program on your Okuma machine tool to optimize your machine’s capabilities. AOT allows you to describe part geometry using simple, menu-driven commands. The system then draws the defined shape before developing the complete part program for you.

AOT, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Provides step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process of selecting material type, shape, tooling, processes, and cutting motions
  • Uses a DXF import function to import drawing shapes straight into AOT
  • Simulates the cutting process and shows a cutting time study
  • Posts the NC part program—and you can make additional edits to it as well

GAGING

Simple set-up for maximum control

Since Okuma’s OSP-P series control provides an open library of APIs (Application Program Interfaces), our gaging collaborators at Partners in Thinc have easy access to all of the various registers, which allows our customers to take full control of their manufacturing processes. Since our gaging partners can log, track, and make offsets directly to the control—and without operator intervention—they can meet any and all of your pre-operation, in-process, or post-process gaging needs.

Gaging, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Offers easy setup
  • Eliminates operator error
  • Reduces your scrap rate
  • Allows you to check a part while you’re actually making it
  • Lets you change out parts in seconds
  • Enables inexperienced machinists to perform measurement processes

LASER

Additive and subtractive capabilities, within one machine

Advtech laser 2

While traditional metal cutting will always have its place, in today’s market the ability to multitask isn’t a luxury—it’s a necessity. With our award-winning Laser EX Series, subtractive and additive capabilities are combined within a single machining center. These super machines also offer metal hardening, coating capabilities, heat treatments, and more.

Laser, an Okuma Advanced Technology:

  • Reduces set-up and programming time
  • Offers smaller footprint (one machine versus multiple machines for the same job)
  • Creates prototype parts without disrupting normal production
  • Allows for part inspection throughout production—without waiting until the end of the additive process
  • Makes unique part shape geometries possible
  • Allows for easy and efficient repairs
