Okuma’s GA26W grinder is now equipped with Easy Operation OSP-P300G CNC control. Okuma’s open architecture OSP-P control runs on a Windows-based platform and fully integrates the machine, motors, drives and encoders, enabling enhanced machine performance and true customization to suit particular machining needs. The Easy Operation control and touchscreen increase efficiency by enabling users to easily toggle between machine operations, programming and wheel preparation screens.

According to Okuma, the CNC grinders’ wheelhead traverse structure gives the machine a solid, compact footprint that saves valuable floor space while the user-friendly design eases loading various workpieces for automation in high-production environments. The rigid foundation paired with Okuma’s hydrodynamic wheel spindle supports heavy-duty grinding. The 7.5-kW (15-kW-optional) grinding wheel spindle is ideal for grinding mass-produced parts with precision. The GA26W grinder is equipped with standard chatter control function that automatically adjusts wheel speed for accurate, stable machining.

Features include IGAP+ conversational programming, a large 610 mm (24") grinding wheel, and a tailstock quill stroke of 50 mm. Also included is a wheel spindle motor with speeds ranging to 7.5 kW (10 hp), or an optional 15-kW (20-hp) spindle motor. The machine features high feed rates of 30 m/min. on the X axis and 20 m/min. on the Z axis. A variety of loader patterns is included for easy automation.
