How To Reduce Machine Tool Energy Costs

November 18, 2016

The cost of energy may rise and fall, but it always has an impact on a CNC machine shop’s profitability. Additionally, conserving energy today helps keep overall costs more stable while insuring we’ll have the energy we need tomorrow. That’s why energy efficiency is one more factor to consider when buying your next machine tool.

The Okuma OSP control already enables the machine tool to operate with greater energy efficiency, and is enhanced by the addition of the Okuma ECO suite. This next generation technology enables such functions as Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept to reduce energy usage while the machine tool is idling.

As this new video demonstrates, using the ECO suite reduces energy usage by 74% during non-machining times and 9% while performing machining operations.
