Tech Event Highlights “Smart” Machining Technology

Slideshow From: MoldMaking Technology,

Among the highlights of Okuma’s recent Technology Showcase event were productivity-enhancing “apps” for the company’s open-architecture CNC; a tool monitoring and adaptive control system; and an auto-tuning system that eases error compensation on five-axis machine tools.

Manufacturing technology isn’t just getting faster and more efficient—it’s also getting smarter. That was a major takeaway from Okuma’s 2013 Technology Showcase at its Charlotte, North Carolina headquarters, where the company and members of its Partners in THINC collaboration network highlighted various systems that make machining easier, perform tedious tasks automatically behind the scenes, and customize how users interact with their equipment, among other advantages. The picture gallery below details just a few examples of what I saw.
