Okuma America Corporation has announced that select machines from its core product line now come equipped with the Advanced One Touch-Interactive Graphics Function (AOT-IGF), a conversational programming software designed for Okuma's lathes, machining centers and multitasking machines.
AOT enables plants and shops to easily create simple part designs without the need for highly-trained programmers, achieve faster setup times, and increase machine productivity.
Maximize a Machine Tool's Full Potential
With AOT onboard, a highly-intuitive graphical user interface provides step-by-step instructions that guide operators through the process of selecting material type, tooling, processes, and cutting motions for the desired part design. From there, the system then simulates the cutting process in a 3D graphical view before exporting the NC (numeric control) program. Using AOT to create custom programs allows manufacturers to maximize their machine tool's full potential, while eliminating concern regarding correct program syntax.
Advantages of Using Advanced One Touch
A key benefit of AOT is that it allows shops to get the most out of their machine tools while avoiding typical manufacturing pitfalls. Specifically, it allows users to:
Shops that do not currently have AOT installed on their machines can give Advanced One Touch a try by downloading a free 60-day trial. The trial version is for use on a PC and will provide an interactive preview of the functionalities and benefits of the software.
