To help users get started with machine tool apps, machine tool builder Okuma America Corporation has released a series of how-to videos showing step-by-step procedures for downloading, configuring, installing and running apps (available from the Okuma App Store) on its THINC-OSP CNCs.

The three videos show step-by-step procedures for downloading, configuring, installing and running apps on an Okuma machine control. They are designed to be used as a training tool for new users. Current how-to video demonstrations include:

SCOUT (System Compatibility Output Utility): Quickly identifies if your machine is compatible with App Store apps. All applications have certain system requirements, and SCOUT takes the burden off the user to determine which apps are compatible. 

How to Install an Okuma Machine Tool App: Provides the basics for machine tool app installation. The example shown is Okuma’s Part Flip Monitor. 

Machine Alert: Allows users to set up machine alarm notifications by email or to ensure chip production without interruption. 

Okuma’s App Store is a centralized marketplace for machine tool apps and related content. It currently offers more than 29 apps available for various functionalities ranging from CAD/CAM software, measurement and gaging to security and tooling. Okuma’s THINC-OSP CNC controls use a Windows-based open architecture platform, and therefore are fully integrated, allowing for true customization to suit particular machining needs.
