Die / Mold

When you start with quality machine tools, you deliver quality parts

Many toolmakers use a time-tested formula when it comes to die/mold machining: Quality In = Quality Out. That’s why discriminating toolmakers also choose Okuma die/mold machinery: they demand high standards for build quality, long-term accuracy, and reliable performance. With more than 30 years in the die/mold industry, we have worked with the industry’s most demanding shops, so we understand your specialized needs. And, as the industry’s only single-source provider, we provide the machine, drive, motors, encoders, spindle, and control to deliver a fully integrated system for our die-mold customers.

Toolmakers who use Okuma machine tools know that they’re sturdy, heavy CNC machines. That’s because we take no shortcuts with build quality. We use high-quality cast iron in all our machines, and our castings are all naturally aged, with no artificial aging processes. We’ve done extensive research on the optimum web designs for castings and use those that provide a solid foundation which are best at preventing harmonics that lead to chatter. Some machines even incorporate a “hybrid way system” that combines a box way with linear roller guides, which ultimately provides the best of both way designs.

In addition, the following features and capabilities help our mold/die customers achieve their manufacturing goals:

CNC Controls: Our OSP-P300 control is built using the Windows®-based, open-architecture platform. You can send production orders to your MRP systems right from the machine tool, track production with scanned barcodes, and generate reports to share with the management team.

Hand Scraping: Since every Okuma machine is hand scraped on each mating surface, you can produce more parts over a longer timeframe. The result is increased accuracy, decreased costs, and maximized profitability for your operation.

Intelligent Technologies: From our Thermo-Friendly Concept to Turn-Cut, and from our cycle time reduction function to part accountability and traceability, our innovations are designed to maximize efficiency, and streamline your die/mold operation.

Super-NURBS: One of our specific Advanced Technologies, Super-NURBS offers key benefits for the die/mold industry, which includes using ultra-high feedrates and providing smoother surfaces—without any hand-finishing.

“No Fit” Approach: Because of Okuma’s accuracy and repeatability, when a top or bottom piece requires replacement it can simply be exchanged with another right off the shelf. Since the pieces already fit, no matching or customization is needed, and your operation doesn’t skip a beat.

Customer Care: With our vast distribution network, you have 24/7/365 access to support, which includes $200 million parts inventory worldwide, $40 million parts inventory at Okuma in North Carolina, and $20 million distributor parts inventory in North America.

Partners in THINC: With our best-in-class technology partners we efficiently fulfill high-volume requirements such as in-process and post-process gaging, as well as offer seamless integration with peripheral equipment like gaging and robotics.
