Okuma’s Winter Showcase is an annual tradition, where manufacturing professionals gather at Okuma headquarters in Charlotte, NC to see machine demos, learn about cutting-edge CNC technology and meet with fellow industry professionals. This year’s event will be held Nov. 28 and 29 from 9 to 4 pm (EST) each day and registration is free.
You’ll discover how Okuma can make your shop more efficient—and far more profitable. The Winter Showcase allows us to highlight our complete line of machine tools while also celebrating you – our customer!
A major benefit of attending the Winter Showcase is the ability to see Okuma machine tools in person while having the opportunity to speak with our experts and industry partners. There will be 22 machine demos featured on lathes, machining centers, and grinders, each showing the strengths and advantages of that particular machine. There’s no better way to determine which machine is the best fit for your shop floor than to see it perform in person.
There will be a considerable amount of manufacturing expertise at the event, which truly creates a unique opportunity. The Winter Showcase gives you the chance to network with industry peers and interact with Okuma applications engineers and members of Partners in THINC. They’ll be available to answer questions specific to your business and manufacturing processes.
Whether you’re interested in automation, powerful cutting capabilities, or machining flexibility you’ll have the opportunity to see Okuma machines that fit all your manufacturing needs. Additionally, cutting-edge automation systems will be on display, giving you a glimpse into the future of manufacturing.
