Okuma America Corporation is the US based affiliate of Okuma Corporation, a world leader in the development of computer numeric controls (CNC) and machining technology, founded in 1898 in Nagoya, Japan. Okuma is known for its technology leadership and world-class manufacturing, product quality and dedication to customer service. Okuma products are used in the automotive, aerospace and defense, construction and farming equipment, oil and energy, medical, mold and die, and fluid power industries. With Okuma as your machining partner you are free to imagine a more productive, cost-effective solution, knowing we can work together to make it happen.
Okuma Double Column Machining Centers provide a solid, extra rigid foundation for performing accurate machining on extremely large parts let you perform accurate machining on very large parts. With two columns supporting the machine head and our innovative bridge-built architecture, these machines are designed to deliver precision and power. The second column not only provides stability, but also increases the overall size of the machine, allowing you to complete longer and larger parts. The Okuma THINC – OSP control manages the machine for efficiency and accuracy.
The Okuma line of I.D. and O.D. cylindrical grinding machines is the result of more than 60 years of experience designing grinders that meet the precision needs of industry. Okuma grinders feature a hydrostatic spindle which runs a film of oil, assuring a greater transfer of horsepower to the cut. These high performance grinders can be fitted with a wide range of options and third party accessories making them easy to integrate into production lines.
Okuma software has been developed to help you achieve optimum results from your Okuma machine, quickly and efficiently without an extensive learning curve. We build our own machines from the ground up and we know best what they are capable of doing. Since we know the specifications first hand, we can create software that maximizes the potential of Okuma machines. It’s Mechatronics, our all-encompassing approach to machine building, come full circle.
