For those involved with CNC machining on curved surfaces, producing a smooth finish is critical. A new white paper from Okuma America Corporation details the company’s Super-NURBS programming functionality that meets high-accuracy finish requirements while speeding up cycle times. The result is drastically reduced hand-finishing time to achieve high-quality parts quickly.

The term “NURBS” is an acronym for Non-Uniform Rational Basis Spline, a mathematical way to regenerate freeform curves and shapes. Super-NURBS is Okuma’s proprietary technology for achieving NURBS functionality within a CNC machining environment. Titled “Super-NURBS Cuts Curved Surfaces With High-Accuracy and Speedy Cycle Times – Completing Parts on the Machine” the white paper examines topics such as:

How Super-NURBS eliminates redundancies and allows for a faster and smoother tool path

  • Why Super-NURBS delivers the fastest speeds and highest quality finishes in the industry
  • How Super-NURBS’ faster control loops speed allows for more ultra-high feed rates to be used
  • Why there’s no need for a look-ahead – Super-NURBS is inherently fast without it
  • How to deliver parts “out the door” faster, with better finish quality and accuracy

Super-NURBS enables controlled high speed and high-quality CNC machining. Completing parts on the machine – this is possible with Super-NURBS.
