We Never Hit Pause
While 2020 was a year unlike any other, it didn’t change Okuma’s commitment to serving our customers and investing product and technology developments that will drive impactful results for shop owners. We’ve never taken our foot off the pedal despite the pandemic, and going into 2021, we’re offering a full lineup of inventory, various technological advancements, and an enhanced customer experience. In other words, there’s never been a better time to own an Okuma.
We Continue to Invest
Machine Inventory. A substantial investment in Okuma machine tools stands ready to support shops throughout the Americas. One of the learnings from the challenges of 2020 is the importance of being flexible and adaptable to market conditions. Do you have a new product to produce? Are you entering a new market? Developing new processes? Our inventory is ready to meet your needs. We’ve got you covered with the machine tool you need, today and tomorrow.
Product Line Diversification. Okuma continues to invest in innovations to our lineup of machine tool products. Notably, we’ve recently added the new ROID series, Okuma’s next-generation automation systems that provide exceptional precision for automated tasks. ARMROID is a built-in robot packaged within the machine tool that includes functionalities such as part loading and unloading, chatter suppression, chip removal, and in-machine cleaning, ensuring that your Okuma machine consistently operates at its highest efficiency. STANDROID is a standalone robot package that provides automation in high-mix, low to medium-volume production.
Substantial Parts Inventory. Okuma and our distributors continue to maintain over $200 million in global OEM manufactured and certified parts inventory so we’re ready to support your service needs whenever they arise.
Simplified Programming. Select machines from Okuma’s core product line now come equipped with the Advanced One Touch-Interactive Graphics Function (AOT-IGF), a conversational programming software designed for Okuma’s lathes, mills and multitasking machines. AOT enables shops to easily create part-design programs without the need for highly trained programmers, achieve faster setup times, and increase machine productivity.
Industry Leading Warranty. Okuma’s warranty program for new and aftermarket-repaired products is second to none in the industry, with up to five years of coverage on new CNC machines and up to two years for aftermarket-repaired parts.
Free Mechanical (Spindle) & Electrical Evaluation Programs. Okuma is pleased to offer its customers complimentary evaluations of select mechanical and electrical components of their Okuma machine tools. These services are completely risk-free to customers, which directly supports our mission of partnering with customers for life.
ROI. An investment in an Okuma machine tool is an investment in the long-term success of your shop. Okuma machines are built for the long haul, and they come standard with a myriad of services and support that can best be measured in the peace of mind that comes from being able to deliver quality parts to your customers on time, every time.
At Okuma, we’re full steam ahead, always investing in our people, our platforms, and our technologies for the sake of offering our customers open possibilities. We’ve maintained a full inventory, grown our automation offerings, and included even more standard features on our machines. As manufacturing ramps up in the months ahead, we’re more than prepared to meet the demand.
