Okuma's New Intelligent Technology ServoNavi® Shortens Cycle Times and Achieves Higher CNC Machining Accuracies

High precision technology is ideal for maintaining long term accuracy, surface quality and cutting precise, heavy parts.

Charlotte, NC September 17, 2015


Okuma America Corporation, a world-leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, introduces ServoNavi, a new Intelligent Technology that improves cycle times and accuracy when machining heavy parts. ServoNavi is the fifth option available in Okumas set of performance-enhancing "Intelligent Technologies" and is standard on most machining centers, lathes and multitasking machines equipped with the OSP-P300 control.

ServoNavi Highlights

Work Weight Auto Setting: Automatically estimates table loads, adjusting for optimal speed resulting in faster cycle times. This function is ideal for dies requiring surface shaping.

Auto Inertia Setting: Estimates chuck and workpiece speed and direction, automatically changing servo parameter settings to optimum values to reduce positioning errors. High accuracy and stable movement are maintained during machining.

Reversal Spike Adjustment: Maintains machining accuracy and surface quality by fine tuning slide resistance changes that occur over time due to various machine tool applications. Decreases reversal spikes and eliminates crease marks during axis reversal, resulting in better surface finishes.

Vibration Auto Adjustment: Eliminates noise and vibration which contributes to longer machine life while improving surface quality.

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
