Machine tool builder Okuma America Corporation offer a new, Web-based tool that is designed to take the guesswork out of selecting a machine.

Users begin by selecting the machine type (lathe, machining center, grinder, double-column or 5-axis machine). Based on the machine type, various parameters are chosen (chuck size, turning diameter, turning length, bar diameter, spindle speed, table size, etc.).  Additional options may include live tooling, secondary spindle and automatic tool changers (ATC). 

Once specifications are selected, the machine selector populates a list of all the available Okuma machines that meet the user’s requirements. It displays complete machine descriptions and any related video demonstrations, and more detailed information and specifications are available by clicking on the machine photos. Users can also request price quotes by completing the Request A Quote form on each machine’s detail page.
