Super-NURBS
Though Super-NURBS sounds 21st century, the concept actually dates back to the middle of the previous one. Initially developed as a mathematical way to regenerate freeform curves and shapes (e.g. car bodies and ship hulls), in manufacturing, it is now utilised in most CAD software packages, along with CAM systems.

The “NURBS” part of Super-NURBS stands for Non-Uniform Rational Basis Spline, but we added the “super” to ours because it adds a higher degree of accuracy when the surface being machined has complex shapes or large changes of diameter within a short linear distance. With Super-NURBS, it all comes down to controlling - and really shortening - the feedback loop.

The OSP control projects a predetermined tolerance band that creates a spline considered to be the best fit for the job. This eliminates redundancies and allows for a smoother tool path. With less data to process, movements are sped up - but the highest level of accuracy is maintained to create quality surface finishes.

Super-NURBS is another prime example of Okuma’s commitment to mechatronics. From routine parts to complex free forms, this high-speed CNC function guarantees the greatest levels of machining accuracy and product precision in up to half the time it takes conventional technology. This translates to increased throughput: raw material that comes in through the back door and goes out the front door much faster.

Features:
- Adds a higher degree of accuracy for surfaces with complex shapes or large changes of diameter within a short linear distance
- Eliminates redundancies which allows for a smoother and swifter tool path
- Guarantees high machining accuracy and finish quality in half the time it takes conventional technology
- Grants a greater level of control - and effectively shortening - the feedback loop
- Increases throughput since raw material is processed in shorter timeframes
- Potentially eliminates the long and costly step of hand finishing, polishing or grinding

OSP suite
Okuma is the only full-service provider of CNC machining solutions who manufactures own CNC control systems. Okuma’s latest CNC controller, the OSP suite, is an open system that combines Okuma’s Intelligent Technology with various software applications. True to Okuma’s brand message "Open Possibilities", users can develop and smoothly integrate own as well as third-party applications into the control interface, opening up exceptional opportunities.

The new interface is individually configurable for up to three operators. Users can freely organise the menus, apply shortcuts and add their own widgets. More than 30 different suite apps are ready for use with immediate access to necessary information and data. Custom PDFs can be saved in the library in addition to Okuma manuals, with a useful search function integrated. 3D PDF created to visualise complex parts for faster understanding of the geometries help operators to shorten the setup time. The ECO suite combines highly advanced energy saving features with the machine idling stop function, taking into account additional equipment. As a result, the OSP suite brings about an extreme increase in machining efficiency and makes a valuable contribution towards cost reduction.

Suite: Intelligent Technology
A suite to maximise productivity and visualise operations - centred around the Thermo-Friendly Concept, Collision Avoidance System, Machining Navi, and 5-Axis Auto Tuning System

Suite: Digital Manufacturing
A suite of premium applications to increase the efficiency of the manufacturing process

ECO suite
A fusion of intelligent and energy-saving technologies and an idling stop function for machine tools

The next generation energy-saving solution

ECO Idling Stop
Effectively stops machine tool idling: utilising the technology of Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept, the machine determines whether or not cooling is necessary. In order to accurately regulate the temperature, ECO Idling Stop checks each cooling unit on the milling and turning spindles individually. When cooling is complete, the cooling units automatically stop while accuracy remains stable. Each idling stop unit can be adjusted individually, starting with unused units at the completion of machining.

ECO Hydraulics
Reduces power consumption by up to 63%: by applying servo control technology to hydraulic units with precision control, ECO Hydraulics is able to achieve super low rotation speeds while maintaining accurate control.

ECO Power Monitoring
Visualises energy savings: ECO Power Monitoring grants the operator a real-time look at the benefits of ECO Idling Stop. The machine tool’s display shows power consumption for spindles, feed axes and peripheral equipment.

Turn-Cut
We are always looking for new ways to maximise a horizontal machining centre’s capabilities. Turn-Cut, a programming option born from our philosophy of manufacturing both control and machine, allows for the creation of surfaces that taper, arc, or have any varying diameter shapes along the Z-axis of a work piece on a standard CNC machining platform. In other words, it is another Okuma technology that allows you to get far more out of your machining centre, especially when the need arises to create valves, pipes and manifold-type parts.

Designed for applications that would traditionally require a CNC lathe to turn a feature, Turn-Cut eliminates the need to purchase such special purpose machines, along with any additional tooling, fixtures or add on components. In many cases, a part’s size, shape or weight makes it impossible to set up on a lathe anyway; but with Turn-Cut, large, awkwardly shaped and unbalanced parts remain stationary as a new tool path is created.

Since Turn-Cut synchronises the X and Y circular motion with the spindle angle, the tool edge maintains that newly programmed path for the duration of the job. And above and beyond this newfound ability and efficiency, in nearly all cases the additional options that come with the Turn-Cut package make the machine perform more consistently - even for applications that do not require Turn-Cut.

If you are looking to integrate seamlessly with tooling already developed and readily available, and to enhance your machine without piling on additional components and crippling weight that can restrict normal CNC machining operations, then Turn-Cut represents the perfect choice. Of course, since it eliminates the need to purchase an additional machine, and frees up vital floor space, it is an easy choice, too.

Features:
- Provides process optimization capabilities without a large investment in specialized tooling, attachments or secondary machines
- Makes the machine perform more consistently and accurately, even in applications that do not require Turn-Cut capability
- Reduces setup times because no additional fixturing is needed and parts do not have to be moved to separate machines
- Eliminates the need for expensive index chucks used for the manufacturing of small valves or tees
- Frees up more floor space because an additional machine is not needed to complete turning applications
