CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 09, 2015) – Okuma America Corporation, a world-leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, today announced the launch of their web-based machine selector tool http://www.okuma.com/machine-selector.   

Okuma offers an extremely wide variety of CNC machine tools with a broad range of sizes and configurations for various applications. The machine selector tool takes the guess work out of selecting a machine by providing users with a convenient and effortless method of finding the Okuma machine tool that best suits their specific manufacturing needs. 

Users begin by selecting the machine type (lathe, machining center, grinder, double column or 5-axis machine). Based on the machine type, various parameters are chosen (chuck size, turning diameter, turning length, bar diameter, spindle speed, table size, etc.).  Additional options may include live tooling, secondary spindle and automatic tool changers (ATC).  

Once specifications are selected, the machine selector populates a list of all the available Okuma machines that meet the specific requirements submitted. Complete machine descriptions and any related video demonstrations are displayed and users can access additional information and detailed specifications for individual machines by clicking on the machine photos. 

Users can request additional information or price quotes by completing the Request A Quote form found on each machine’s detail page. Quotes and additional information will be delivered by Okuma‘s industry-leading, nationwide distributor network.
