LET THE MACHINE DO THE MATH

Left your calculator across the shop? Don’t have your phone in your pocket? No problem! The Okuma controller can do the math for you!

In most places on the control where you can type a number, you can also type a mathematical expression. Additionally, you can do math in your G-Code as well.

For example, if you want to turn on the spindle for a part that needs to run at 650SFPM and four inches in diameter you could say:

S=650*3.82/4 M3

The spindle would then come on at 621 RPM.
