Okuma held its 2017 Summer Showcase event July 19-20 at its North American headquarters in Charlotte, NC. More than 200 customers from 100 companies attended the event. Okuma created a video to highlight the event.

Demonstrations featured exotic material cutting on titanium as well as stainless steel and aluminum and were focused on the automotive industry.

Summer Showcase Highlights:
