Okuma America Corporation Debuts Next-Generation CNC Machine Control Introduces the OSP-P500

September 28, 2023

The leadership team of Okuma America Corporation is thrilled to introduce the company's latest advancement in CNC (computer numeric control) machine tool technology – the Okuma OSP-P500, representing the next generation of machine control systems. This remarkable addition to the OSP control line, which boasts a storied history dating back to 1963, leverages 60 years of expertise and embraces the transformative power of modern digital technologies to elevate user experiences and optimize contemporary manufacturing operations.

Enhancing Performance and User-Friendliness

The OSP-P500 is meticulously engineered to meet the demands of today's high-speed, high-precision manufacturing operations. Equipped with dual-core computer processors as standard, it delivers heightened processing power, allowing multiple concurrent processes to run efficiently. This translates to reduced cycle times per machined part and shortened production run times. The dual-core processors also offer redundancy, ensuring uninterrupted machining operations.

A standout feature of the OSP-P500 is its incorporation of Digital Twin Technology. This technology enables the creation of high-precision machining simulations on a computer while simultaneously providing real-time data feedback from the operational machine tool to the simulation computer. This unique capability empowers operators to utilize real-time data for optimizing machine tool functions and performance.

Operator-Centric and Secure Operation

The OSP-P500 places a premium on user-friendliness. It is built on an open-architecture platform using Microsoft Windows, complemented by on-board conversational programming capabilities, making it one of the easiest machine control systems to program in the market. Moreover, the addition of new ergonomic features, including screen tilt and swivel capabilities, ensures comfortable machine operation for all users.

As digital data collection, assessment, and transfer become increasingly integral to modern manufacturing, data security becomes paramount. The Okuma OSP-P500 is equipped with robust protective features, including tamper-proof protection, whitelisting of the machine's API, anomaly detection, mandatory operator identification and authentication, and regularly scheduled software and data backups.

Smart and Sustainable Machining Technologies

Beyond its impressive machining capabilities, the OSP-P500 is designed with environmental sustainability in mind. It comes standard with Okuma's proprietary ECO suite plus technology, a suite of digital features that meticulously monitor and control energy consumption, striking an ideal balance between energy efficiency and machining performance. Additionally, the ECO suite plus application provides the ability to report on CO2 emissions at the machine level.

Key Features of the OSP-P500 CNC Control:

Available in two sizes: 15" screen or 21.5" screen, based on machine size

Sleek and space-saving modern design

Ergonomic tilt and swivel capabilities

QWERTY keyboard for convenience

Full-color touchscreen for intuitive operation

Pulse handle options for enhanced control

Utilizes a Windows-based operating system

Open architecture platform for seamless integration with Apps from the Okuma App Store

The OSP-P500 CNC Control will make its Western-hemisphere debut at the Gosigerfest event in Dayton, OH, on September 13, 2023. It will be available for purchase in the Americas starting in the Fall of 2023, initially on select Okuma machine tool models. Subsequently, it will be rolled out to a broader range of Okuma models throughout 2024.
