Established partner for the aerospace industry
Okuma to fly the flag at Paris Air Show
The global market leader for CNC machine tools and controls offers the aerospace sector complete solutions from a single source. Okuma will join this year’s Paris Air Show (LeBourget, 17 – 23 June 2019, Hall 4 E 51). The industry is invited to find out more about the latest, specialised machining processes. Okuma has more than three decades of expertise in machining technology for the aerospace industry.
Okuma is the only single-source provider of CNC machine tools and controls. The aerospace portfolio includes manufacturing solutions for many workpieces such as turbine components, gear parts, hydraulic valves and landing gears. Okuma’s wide range of multitasking machines of the MU-V, MULTUS-U and VTM-YB series are predestined for aerospace applications and the super-multitasking LASER EX series is additionally equipped with additive manufacturing capabilities. Aerospace manufacturers benefit from Okuma’s intelligent technologies like the Thermo-Friendly Concept, which compensates thermal deformation. The benefit is unrivalled dimensional stability for example during long-term machining operations. With the use of Dynamic Tool Load Control, costs can be reduced by allowing the usage of cheap insert tools for machining difficult-to-cut materials like titanium. Visitors to the Air Show will have the opportunity to discuss the latest technological trends with the Okuma experts and are welcome to experience Okuma’s IIoT solution Connect Plan. The software-based system provides analytics for improved utilisation by connecting machine tools and providing visual control of factory operations and machining.
Aerospace Center of Excellence
Okuma traditionally puts a special focus on dedicated applications for the aerospace industry and maintains three global Aerospace Centers of Excellence in Krefeld (Germany), Charlotte (USA) and Oguchi (Japan). All three facilities offer demonstrations of the specific solutions in operation and are open to interested visitors all year round.
