High Performance Motorsports / Automotive -

Global competition in the automotive market continues to grow, and being successful means producing long run and short run parts efficiently, accurately and on time. Durable and reliable Okuma machining centers and lathes give you the capacity and flexibility you need to compete effectively, and, when used in conjunction with the THINC-OSP control, manufacture parts quickly, with accuracy and reliability. Competition in the field of motorsports also continues to grow. Okuma machine tools are setting the standard for high performance in the production of racing engine components—pistons, cylinder heads, camshafts, and wheels—with precise dimensional control for quality, reliability and durability. In 2004, we formed the Okuma High Performance Motorsports industry team to develop the machining technology that gives shops a competitive edge in the production of precision performance components. The lessons we’re learning here translate into improvements in technology for virtually every type of precision machining application.

Partners in THINC - Partners in THINC brings together multiple supportive companies from throughout the industry to create the best manufacturing solution for our customers.
