Okuma Europe is pleased with the outcome of their Smart Factory Open House. From October 25 to October 27 the machine tool manufacturer welcomed more than 200 visitors at their European headquarters in Germany to explore the latest solutions in automated CNC machining. The event offered valuable insight into new technologies for unmanned production to allow for more flexible production planning, shortened deliveries, higher efficiency and reduced costs.
Okuma will host an open house in order to provide customers, distributors and media representatives with a first-hand look at the manufacturer’s approach to the fourth industrial revolution. Via a real time simulation of a state-of- the-art smart factory, visitors will gain valuable insight into the challenges and opportunities presented by Industry 4.0 . The one-day event is held on three consecutive days from October 25 to October 27 at Okuma’s European headquarters in Krefeld, Germany.
Okuma and 5ME, a leading pioneer in cryogenic machining, are joining forces to educate the machining world on the benefits of using internal Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) instead of coolant during the cutting process. Currently, there are 12 Okuma machine models that can be ordered with 5ME cryogenic machining technology, including vertical machining centres and horizontal machining centres specifically designed for aerospace parts processing. In some instances cryogenic machining is retrofittable.
In recent years there has been a growing trend towards machine workpieces longer than 1000 mm, and the demand for improved threading productivity has also increased. Specifically designed to improve the productivity of long shaft applications, Okuma added a new model with 1300-mm distance between centres to its flagship LB3000 EX II SPACE TURN series of CNC lathes.
Okuma introduces their high-precision application SERVONAVI as part of their line of Intelligent Technology features. Available on almost all of the manufacturer’s machining centres, lathes and multitasking machines, the application is able to increase surface quality, reduce production time and to undo the effects of wear and tear in older machines.
