7 Facts About Dual Column (Bridge-Type) CNC Machines

October 15, 2013

describe the imageDating back to the time when all machine tools were operated manually and part tolerances were more forgiving, the “C” machine design was the industry standard. When CNC came along, dimensional tolerances tightened and manufacturers demanded faster spindle speeds to deal with harder-to-machine alloys, the inherent performance problems with the “C” design became obvious. We asked Jim Endsley, Product Specialist Machining Centers for Okuma, to explain why the company moved from “C” designs to the current double column or bridge design. Here are the facts Jim shared with us:

Custom APPs Provide Greater Productivity for Okuma CNC Machine Users

May 2, 2013

blogvideoDayton, OH — CNC machine distributor and factory automation integrator Gosiger, Inc. develops custom APPs for Okuma OSP controls that enable machine users to manage manufacturing processes more efficiently and accurately. These APPs are specifically designed for each customer’s application and seamlessly integrated into the Okuma OSP control system.

Gosiger programmers have recently developed custom APPs for these purposes:

  • Lathe High Pressure Coolant Interface — controls the high pressure coolant delivery system from the Okuma OSP control allowing usage of standard machine coolant and auto control, while enabling manual override via the touch screen.
  • Steady Rest With Integrated Operator User Interface — allows the operator to control and monitor the steady rest and provides program setup without switching screens.
  • Lathe Double Tool Life — enables the customer to have 2 cutting tools on each turret tool station. The program keeps track of the life of the first tool and when it expires calls up the offsets for the spare tool which automatically replaces the worn tool.
