Okuma America Corp. has released a new app that displays scheduled maintenance and inspection reminders directly on the CNC machine tool control without interrupting programming, helping to minimize unplanned service and downtime.

Service recommendations can be displayed on a daily basis or intermittently throughout the life of the machine, depending on the particular maintenance need. The app shows all of the maintenance tasks set for a specific machine by the Okuma software department. If tasks cannot be completed on a particular day, the user has the option to choose when to receive the next reminder or can dismiss the warning.

Users can also opt for customized, periodic maintenance reminders that the operator selects upon installation. Daily reminders include routine checks for chuck/tailstock pressure and coolant/oil levels that can be programmed and scheduled to appear based on user preference. Once the maintenance has been performed, the operator checks off the tasks and minimizes the app.

The Okuma app is available for a variety of CNC lathes, multifunction machines and machining centers equipped with the Okuma THINC OSP- P200 or 300 CNC control. It is available for free download through the Okuma website at okuma.com/thinc-apps.
