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 Okuma's 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.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
