Mastercam at Okuma Lunch & Learn


Last Wednesday, May 21, we traveled down to Houston, TX to the Okuma Tech Center to team up with Okuma, ISCAR, Hartwig, and Mastercam Reseller MLC CAD Systems for the latest installment of the Okuma Lunch & Learn Series. We held a 2.5 hour educational session over lunch discussing the benefits of Dynamic Motion technology to nearly 65 attendees! Presentations by CNC corporate and ISCAR representatives were followed by live machining of 1048 steel on an Okuma M560 Mill and 304 stainless on an Okuma L400 lathe.

We’ve found that while Dynamic Motion has certainly been heard of, some users are hesitant to try it until they actually see the results for their own eyes. We wanted to get users experience the benefits first hand, increase their confidence in the technology, and implement its use on the machines they already have in their shops. We started out with some traditional cutting strategies, and then changed pace to some Dynamic Motion, and saw jaws drop.

A big thanks to Okuma, Hartwig, ISCAR, and MLC CAD Systems for helping us pull this event off without a hitch. Be sure to check often, as we’re planning much more of these informative sessions aimed at making you get the most out of Mastercam using built-in technology you already have. In some instances, we’ve reduced cycle time up to 70% or more using Dynamic Motion. Additionally, Dynamic Motion dramatically extends tool life, saves wear and tear on machines, and cuts hard materials more easily.
