Machine tool users will learn about the benefits of implementing cutting-edge CNC technologies to raise efficiencies, expand capabilities and advance business. Participants will also view cutting demonstrations on more than 20 machine tools and see how these technologies can give them a competitive edge.
- Okuma’s New Technology: The LASER EX series features state-of-the-art laser technology combining subtractive and additive manufacturing, coating and precision hardening on multitasking machines.
- IIoT: Okuma has made the process of connecting machine tools easy for customers through IIoT and MTConnect. Hear how customers are using data collection and analysis to improve profitability.
- Sandvik Coromant Prime Turning™: PrimeTurning™ is a new methodology which enables turning in all directions as opposed to conventional turning. This allows for more flexibility, productivity and efficiency when cutting chips, and can reduce cycle time up to 50 percent.
- Trochoidal Milling: Laine Mears from CU-ICAR (Clemson University, International Center for Automotive Research) will explain how trochoidal milling allows for higher feeds and speeds and how this method and other alternative tool paths fit into the framework of cost-driven, machining planning.
