Okuma releases GA26W grinder with OSP-P300G CNC control

July 13, 2016 – Okuma’s GA26W grinder is now equipped with the intelligent OSP-P300G CNC control. Okuma’s open architecture OSP-P control runs on a Windows-based platform and integrates the machine, motors, drives and encoders, allowing for enhanced machine performance and customization to suit particular machining needs. The Easy Operation control and touch screen increase efficiency by letting users toggle between machine operations, programming and wheel preparation screens.

The wheelhead traverse structure gives this CNC grinder a compact footprint that saves floor space while the design allows various workpieces to be loaded for easy automation in high production environments. The rigid foundation paired with Okuma’s hydrodynamic wheel spindle allows for heavy-duty grinding.

The GA26W is equipped with standard chatter control function that automatically adjusts wheel speed for accurate, stable machining. The powerful 7.5kW (15kW-optional) grinding wheel spindle is ideal for grinding mass produced parts with precision.
