5 Ways To Avoid CNC Machine Collisions

January 8, 2016

A number of new cars include collision avoidance systems that automatically apply the brakes when sensors detect a dangerous situation. Okuma has been equipping CNC machines with systems that prevent costly downtime and collision damage for more than 10 years.

This video explains and demonstrates these five keys to effective collision avoidance on Okuma CNC machines equipped with Collision Avoidance :

  1. Accurate machine models
  2. Accurate models of workholding
  3. Accurate models of tooling
  4. Accurate models of raw material
  5. Models of all CNC machine accessories

See the video and then contact your local Gosiger facility to arrange a demonstration of Collision Avoidance and other examples of Intelligent Technology for CNC machine tools.
