Press Release: New GENOS Series CNC Lathes Provide Okuma Quality at Entry-Level Prices
August 2, 2012
Dayton, OH – According to Okuma dealer Gosiger, Inc. newly introduced GENOS CNC lathes enable manufacturers looking for en entry level, multi-tasking turning machine to perform more complex machining operations with greater ease and accuracy than other low-priced lathes.
Although considered entry-level machines, the 5 GENOS CNC lathe models provide stability, rigidity and accuracy for a multitude of applications. The GENOS series includes a number of standard timesaving features, and a wide range of specification variations so users can handle everything from simple jobs to highly complex parts.
All GENOS models have a high-speed, high-rigidity gearless spindle, a compact high-power and high-torque turret for faster multitasking, and a structurally stable bed designed for minimal thermal distortion. Additionally, the sub-spindle allows front and back machining without interference. The high-accuracy, wide range Y-axis travel uses a double slide system to accommodate a variety of milling operations, and GENOS CNC lathes enable multi-tasking with a single chucking.
The operating system includes touch screen technology in a shop-hardened panel that resists dirt and scratching, provides 2 USB ports and Ethernet connectivity, and has a reliable, vibration-proof hard drive. From a single screen, operators can set and check tool compensation values, and perform Touch Setter arm advance/retraction, and gauging cycle start. Likewise, they can perform the series of operations to start multitasking on one screen while confirming C and Y axes status, and can edit G/M programs with a single touch of the control screen.
In addition to affordability and improved productivity, GENOS CNC lathes reduce energy costs. For example, the flat-screen computer uses 57% less energy than previous Okuma systems, and servo power consumption is reduced by 12%.
