Okuma to launch next-generation control in its 125th year at EMO 2023


A new CNC system, the OSP-P500, will be launched by Japanese machine tool builder Okuma on stand B36 in hall 15 at the EMO 2023. The smart machine control, which is manufactured in-house, combines highly productive and precise machining with ease of use, energy efficiency and safety features to protect against cyber attacks.

 Initially, 5-axis machining centres in Okuma’s MU-V series and the MULTUS series of multitasking turn-milling machines will be equipped with the new machine control. NCMT, the sales agent for Okuma in the UK and Ireland, advises that this latest CNC system has twice the computing power of conventional machine controls, shortening cycle times by up to 15 percent. It is particularly well suited to high-speed machining applications for achieving top quality surface finishes.

The control is equipped with an on-machine Digital Twin to facilitate high-precision simulation of machining processes, reducing set-up times and speeding production. By performing these simulations on the machine itself, production can start immediately afterwards. Alternatively, with Digital Twin on a PC, simulation can be carried out offline while production is in progress on the machine. Even inexperienced users benefit from the advantages of the control due to its user-friendly interface.   www.ncmt.co.uk
