Okuma launches interactive “Industry Parts Viewer” to help aid in the selection of the suitable CNC machine tool

Second option allows website visitors to select from machine size and option parameters to easily choose the appropriately configured machine tool.

Okuma, a leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, has announced the launch of their web-based machine selector tool www.okuma.com/machine-selector.

The OEM offers an extremely wide variety of CNC machine tools with a broad range of sizes and configurations for various applications. The machine selector tool takes the guess work out of selecting a machine by providing users with a convenient and effortless method of finding the Okuma machine tool that best suits their specific manufacturing needs.


The industry parts viewer selection option

Users begin by selecting the machine type (lathe, machining center, grinder, double column or 5-axis machine). Based on the machine type, various parameters are chosen (chuck size, turning diameter, turning length, bar diameter, spindle speed, table size, etc.). Additional options may include live tooling, secondary spindle and automatic tool changers (ATC).

Once specifications are selected, the machine selector populates a list of all the available Okuma machines that meet the specific requirements submitted. Complete machine descriptions and any related video demonstrations are displayed, and users can access additional information and detailed specifications for individual machines by clicking on the machine photos.

CNC machine tool

Visitors can now also explore parts and find machine tools used to cut specific parts for the automotive, aerospace and oil and energy industries on the Okuma website.

The company has also announced the launch of their interactive “Industry Parts Viewer” that provides users with a unique view of industry-specific assemblies and parts. Originally showcased at IMTS 2014, the viewer is now part of the Okuma website which allows users to choose from automotive, aerospace and oil and energy industries to explore component parts and the CNC machine used for cutting each specific part.


The machine tool selector option

Users select an industry, choose a particular assembly, and then click on a part to learn more. Once a part is selected, it’s shown in a three-dimensional view and rotates 360° allowing it to be explored from various angles. The Okuma CNC machines used to cut the part are also listed on a menu detailing machine and partner value added features, specifications and Intelligent Technologies.

Assemblies included in the program are:

• Automotive – engine, brake, suspension, drive-train
• Aerospace – environmental, flight control, landing gear, structural, engine
• Oil/Energy – oil rig, hydraulic fracturing, pump jack

In addition to sourcing technology for parts, the Industry Parts Viewer is also a useful tool in educational settings where it can be used to see how CNC machine tool manufacturing contributes to everyday life.
