A contest staged by Okuma America Corp. will provide one machine shop with free use of an Okuma machine tool for two years.
“All manufacturers face challenges, especially during difficult economic times. Shops struggle with reducing costs, increasing spindle utilization and improving quality. We feel Okuma, along with our partners, offers the best control and machine tool technology and solutions available,” explained Okuma America president and COO Larry Schwartz. “We also realize that new machines might not be in the budgets at this time for some shops. So we’re offering them a way to make their case to get the best technology now.”
Okuma America is the U.S. affiliate of Okuma Corporation, a developer of CNC and machining technology.
