System reduces 5-axis machine tuning time to 10 min.
Okuma America Corp. has introduced the optional 5-axis Auto-Tuning system, which replaces the manual tuning process typically used to maintain motion accuracy in CNC machining. The system performs measurements and compensation in real time, allowing for adjustments to be made in 10 min., depending on machine size.
The system measures the machine and compensates automatically up to 13 geometric errors, including volumetric accuracy. This allows the user to check and correct the machine at any time.
