In 1963, Okuma introduced its first CNC: The OSP. OSP stands for Okuma sampling path, which emphasized the innovation of creating a digital representation of a machine tool’s cutting path.

Today, the descendants of that first CNC represent the continuous development of the company’s commitment to mechatronics, the blending of mechanical and electrical systems into a seamless communication between the machine tool and its control.

From December 10-12, the newest OSP generation, the P300, and the machines it runs will be on display at Okuma America’s Technology Showcase event held at the company’s headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Click here for full details and to register for the show.
