Okuma Machining Centers and Lathes
Okuma horizontal machining centers are engineered to deliver the exact power and precision required to meet any requirement. The Okuma design relies on a strengthened ball screw bracket, 3-point cooling for the Y-axis, intelligent chip handling, and Thermal Active Stability (TAS) to create the most stable and accurate horizontal machining centers on the market.
Okuma's broad range of lathes offers a variety of bore sizes, bed lengths and optional features, 427 combinations in all. This variety allows us to create custom lathe solutions capable of meeting any production need. Many parts can be completed on a single machine. The ability to hold tight tolerances eliminates the need for separate finishing or grinding operations. Okuma's industry-leading THINC - OSP Control creates optimal operating efficiency. The Absolute Position Encoder allows for the immediate return to production in case of power loss or other machine interruption.

Okuma Double Column Machining Centers provide a solid, extra rigid foundation for performing accurate machining on extremely large parts let you perform accurate machining on very large parts. With two columns supporting the machine head and our innovative bridge-built architecture, these machines are designed to deliver precision and power. The second column not only provides stability, but also increases the overall size of the machine, allowing you to complete longer and larger parts. The Okuma THINC – OSP control manages the machine for efficiency and accuracy.
The Okuma line of I.D. and O.D. cylindrical grinding machines is the result of more than 60 years of experience designing grinders that meet the precision needs of industry. Okuma grinders feature a hydrostatic spindle which runs a film of oil, assuring a greater transfer of horsepower to the cut. These high performance grinders can be fitted with a wide range of options and third party accessories making them easy to integrate into production lines.
Okuma software has been developed to help you achieve optimum results from your Okuma machine, quickly and efficiently without an extensive learning curve. We build our own machines from the ground up and we know best what they are capable of doing. Since we know the specifications first hand, we can create software that maximizes the potential of Okuma machines. It’s Mechatronics, our all-encompassing approach to machine building, come full circle.
