A new video by Okuma America Corporation, a world leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, shows how an Okuma user created an app to simplify processes for their operators. The customer, Moser Engineering, had operators without a lot of CNC machining experience, and they needed to find a way to make the user process on their machine tools as easy as possible.

The video shows how Okuma distributor Gosiger went into the control and created a GUI interface so the Moser operators don’t even see the OSP controls, or have to call up any programs at all. The app also provides safeguards so the operators can’t crash the machine tool.

The purpose of the video is to demonstrate how an open architecture control enables users to customize solutions that fit their unique needs and applications. This is the first in a series of videos that show how a CNC control can be used to innovate and drive business growth in machine shops.
