Okuma America Corporation announced that Velocity/SU-matic, a provider of tooling technology, has joined Partners in THINC. Velocity/SU-matic distributes driven and static tooling for Okuma lathes that have M-turret functionality. These tools allow Okuma lathes to perform milling, drilling, turning, boring and gear cutting operations that reduce, and sometimes, eliminate the need to move the parts to other machine types for these processes. Velocity/SU-matic also makes special application tooling for these lathes, which further reduces the total machining time required to make parts.
