Dynamic Machines Designed to Work for Versatile Manufacturers
With a variety of manufacturing projects, contract manufacturers need machines that are flexible and efficient enough to handle anything. Having the best equipment for your business will ensure you deliver the best products possible for whatever industry or industries you specialize in.
Quality over quantity is key when looking for a machine. The ideal machine should serve you for decades and be adaptable to any changes or new processes you may develop in the future. Having a quality machine will allow you to continue making quality parts, even as your business grows and changes.

Learn more about how your job shop could benefit from a multitasking machine.
Multitasking machines are a great fit for shops producing parts requiring multiple operations, as well as small lot sizes where traditional processes require frequent changeovers. A multitasking machine can offer flexibility and quicker changeover possibilities by utilizing a larger ATC for a larger library of tools and the combination of the milling and turning processes in one machine. Okuma’s multitasking machines, such as the MULTUS U and MULTUS B series, can perform milling, turning, grinding, and laser additive or heat treat processes all in one platform.
A multitasking machine can work for your operations if you have concerns about limited space and resources. Getting multiple functions out of the same machine helps ensure you’re making the most of your available resources.

Contract manufacturers produce a wide range of parts for various industries. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that you invest in a machine that can seamlessly and efficiently manage your workload and transition from one project to the next.
Being able to produce parts for various industries, from medical to aerospace, can save on tooling and fixturing costs, setup time and work-in-process, even if the up-front cost is higher than traditional machines.
EASE OF OPERATION
Multitasking machines can minimize the number of processes required to manufacture parts. This can help to reduce operator intervention and parts handling, which in turn increases uptime and accuracy.
Custom fixturing is eliminated when a part is completed on a single machine. Additionally, this eases the strain on your project managers, who will not need to spend as much time or effort moving heavy parts.
