Okuma America Corporation has released a new app that displays scheduled maintenance and inspection reminders. Depending on the particular maintenance that needs to be performed, service recommendations can be displayed on a daily basis or intermittently throughout the life of the Okuma CNC machine tool directly on the CNC control without interrupting programming. The new app enhances productivity by helping to minimize unplanned service and downtime.
The Scheduled Maintenance App automatically appears on the CNC control when maintenance is needed based on the needs of the particular machine. It shows all of the maintenance tasks set for that specific machine by the Okuma software department. If tasks cannot be completed that particular day, the user has the option to choose when to receive the next reminder or can dismiss the warning.
Features of Okuma’s Scheduled Maintenance reminders: •Logged job records to assist with troubleshooting issues •Reminders that are preprogrammed and based on the specific machine and serial number
Users can also opt for customized, periodic maintenance reminders that the operator selects upon installation. Daily reminders include routine checks for chuck/tailstock pressure, coolant/oil levels, etc. that can be programmed and scheduled to appear based on user preference. Once the maintenance has been performed, the operator checks off the tasks and minimizes the app.
