Okuma America Corporation will be a leading sponsor and exhibitor at the upcoming MTConnect [MC]2 Conference on April 10-11, 2013 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
MTConnect is a software protocol standard that allows CNC machine tools, peripheral equipment (such as sensors and barfeeders), and software applications (such as production monitoring software) to speak to each other in a common language, simplifying integration to save you time and help you be more productive.
[MC]2 2013 brings suppliers together to demonstrate MTConnect-based technologies and to educate manufacturers on how the standard can be applied to both newer controls such as Okuma's THINC®-OSP CNC control and even “legacy” CNC controls, with vendors of “black box” solutions also demonstrating product. [MC]2 2011 featured 175 attendees and 24 exhibitors. This tremendous attendance and participation is a sign of just how much MTConnect is changing manufacturing!
The Okuma THINC-OSP CNC Control is an open architecture, Windows®-based control, which means that an Okuma CNC machine tool with the THINC CNC control is already configured for plug-and-play interconnectivity between devices, equipment and systems on your shop floor and front office. This open-architecture configuration also means that Okuma CNC machine tools are MTConnect-ready. If you’re interested in how MTConnect can be applied in your shop to improve your productivity, please visit us at the conference in April. We’ll be happy to demonstrate how the THINC-OSP CNC control can work for you. For more information or to register for this event, visit www.mtconnectconference.org.
