Recently, Okuma Australia hosted an Okuma National Applications meeting in Melbourne.

Karl Corry, National Technology Manager, led this meeting with our 8 Okuma Applications Engineers from Australia and New Zealand.

High on the agenda for discussion was Okuma’s own Intelligent Technology including Okuma Connect Plan and Automation along with customer and Okuma Engineers’ training. 

As Okuma technologies advance exponentially it’s important for our engineers to be well trained.  Participation in collaboration session like this ensures we can implement and train our customer to achieve their best engineering outcomes.  This type of staff development will feature more regularly moving forward,” said Dean McCarroll, Managing Director, Okuma Australia + New Zealand.

A Technical Snapshot

AUTOMATION

Okuma Roid Series

The ARMROID is a "super fusion built-in robot" packaged in the machining chamber of a smart machine and lets operators use its "innovative robot operating system" to operate the robot with normal machine tool-like control without requiring teaching, to achieve innovative automation and productivity.
