:: Industry Parts Viewer Helps Select Appropriate Machine Tools Okuma America Corp. has launched its interactive "Industry Parts Viewer" that provides users with a view of industry- specific assemblies and parts. The viewer is now part of the Okuma website, okuma.com/industry-parts-viewer , and allows users to choose from automotive, aerospace and oil and energy industries to explore component parts and the CNC machine used for cutting each specific part. Users select an industry, choose a particular assembly, and then click on a part to learn more. Once a part is selected, it's shown in a 3D view and rotates 360 degrees, allowing it to be explored from many angles. The Okuma CNC machines used to cut the part are also listed on a menu detailing machine and partner value-added features, specifications and intelligent technologies. :: Find Digital Issues Online Are you interested in looking at back issues of PM without much effort?
