Last month, Okuma America Corporation hosted several hundred machine tool users from more than 250 companies at its 2018 Winter Showcase in Charlotte, North Carolina. Participants viewed cutting demonstrations on 26 machines and custom demos that featured complete manufacturing solutions from Partners in THINC members—all contributing to increased efficiency and productivity. They also toured Okuma headquarters to see the Aerospace Center for Excellence, spindle exchange and board repair.

Check out the video that provides an overview of the event. And here are some other highlights:

  • The debut of Okuma’s MU-8000V Laser EX multitasking machine featuring laser technology that combines subtractive and additive manufacturing
  • The debut of Genos M460V-5AX 5-axis vertical machining center
  • Partners in THINC custom demos featuring cost reduction for part production, data analysis, collaborative robotics, OSP control functionality, and Okuma’s horizontal machining centers.
