A Message from Okuma America Corporation

Company Profile

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 Machining Centers and Lathes

Okuma horizontal machining centers are engineered to deliver the exact power and precision required to meet any requirement.

Okuma Machining Centers and Lathes

Okuma's broad range of lathes offers a variety of bore sizes, bed lengths and optional features, nearly 500 combinations in all - including live tooling and sub-spindles.

As Seen In Production Machining

Okuma Robotic Roid Series Offers Options for Machine Tending

Okuma Robotic Roid Series Offers Options for Machine Tending
Roid series provides simple, reliable robotics for automating machining tasks.

Turn-Mills: Being About the B-Axis
With the addition of powerful B-axis milling spindles and automatic toolchangers, turn-mills combine the best of milling and turning worlds.

3D Printing Creates a Window of Automation Opportunity
For this Omaha shop, periodic part inspection required an automated turning cell to pause production. Printing a plastic parts collection chute for delivery outside the cell solved this problem, and it turns out the shop has found 3D printing to be valuable in many other ways.

CNC Apps You Possibly Didn’t Know You Could Benefit From
Some software capabilities go underutilized. One machine tool builder’s CNC software includes lesser-known apps that shops can leverage to their advantage.

CGTech Vericut Force toolpath optimization module

Automatically Optimize Your CNC Machining Feed Rates
New feed-rate-optimization technology can enable CAM programmers to reduce cycle times and increase tool life for milling and turning operations.

Making Waves with Lathe Automation
After years of relying on an extensive machining cell for part production, this marine equipment manufacturer has now reduced part handling and improved quality through use of single-setup lathes and automated loading and unloading.

Applying the App

An App to Simplify Setups
This shop, specializing in high precision parts for the semiconductor industry, worked closely with its machine tool supplier to develop an app that drastically reduces setup times.

Horizontal machining center

MA-12500HW HMC Cuts Exotic Materials
Okuma America Corp.’s MA-12500HW horizontal machining center is suited for large-part aerospace machining and has a W axis that allows for a longer tool stroke to machine complex, difficult-to-reach part features. 

GA26W grinder

GA26W Grinder is Equipped with Intelligent Control
Okuma’s GA26W high-speed, compact grinder is now equipped with the intelligent OSP-P300G CNC control that integrates the machine, motors, drives and encoders, allowing for machine performance and customization to suit machining needs. 

The Effects of Automation on Manufacturing
Companies that are not currently using automation in their manufacturing processes should be considering it.

Vertical machining center

Genos M560-V VMC Machines an Assortment of Parts
Okuma’s Genos M560-V vertical machining center combines a high column design and CAT 40 Big-Plus spindle to cut large, complex parts with a larger work envelope that minimizes restrictions on workpieces, tool lengths and the rotary table.
