Aerospace Center of Excellence

The Okuma Aerospace Center of Excellence is open to aerospace manufacturers for use as a testing and proving ground for advanced CNC machining technology to enhance productivity while solving the unique challenges faced by the industry.

The nearly 10,000-square-foot space currently houses nine CNC machines designed for the aerospace market, totaling more than $6.5 million in value. The space also includes a fully-operational metrology room, including CMM equipment and other quality measurement devices, as well as a conference room. Additionally, visitors have access to the Partners in THINC facility, which currently houses an additional 16 machines, which are valued at $4.5 million and range from entry-level CNC lathes to machining centers and grinders.

In addition to Okuma equipment and dedicated engineering personnel, facility activities will incorporate resources from members of Partners in THINC, enabling access to an additional 50 suppliers of peripheral equipment and accessories. Tooling, workholding, gauging, software, and other products necessary to optimize manufacturing processes will be easily available, as will the corresponding engineering experts.
