CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Okuma America Corporation, a world leader in CNC machine tools, is pleased to announce that Velocity/SU-matic, a leading provider of tooling technology, has joined Partners in THINC.
Velocity/SU-matic distributes driven and static tooling for Okuma lathes that have M-turret functionality. These tools allow Okuma lathes to perform milling, drilling, turning, boring and gear cutting operations that reduce, and in many circumstances eliminate, the need to move the parts to other machine types for these processes. Velocity/SU-matic also makes special application tooling for these lathes which further reduces the total machining time required to make parts.
“We are very excited to announce the partnership between Velocity/SU-matic and Partners in THINC. This collaboration will enhance our organization by providing solutions that will allow the end users to operate more efficiently resulting in increased profitability” stated Jeff Estes, Director of Partners in THINC.
As a member of Partners in THINC, Velocity/SU-matic is able to further its integration with Okuma America Corporation and other Partners in THINC, to continue the development of new tools and refinement of existing tools to take advantage of Okuma machine tool design and innovation.
