Fluid Power

Delivering the refined surface finishes the industry demands

When it comes to creating components for the fluid power industry, one word comes to mind: precision. Even during mass production of small parts, the tightest tolerances must be upheld or failure will occur. Sealing and performance surfaces must be perfect because an uneven surface—any imperfection, really—has the potential to cause a leak. Ultimately, fit and seal are critical features for components used in high-performance fluid power applications.

At Okuma, our vertical horizontal machining centers, along with our line of multi-tasking machines, are optimized to produce an accurate scroll pattern on valve faces and reduce dimensional variation, all for the sake of improved sealing ability. In addition, by using the OSP-P control, operators can reduce throughput and time when making components. In the end, Okuma machine tools deliver high-quality finishes, all while minimizing the time-consuming—and costly—need for additional processes like grinding, superfinishing, or hand-finishing.

In addition, the following features and capabilities help our fluid power 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 fluid power operation.

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.
