Eco Idling Stop wins MM Award 2016
14 Oct 2016

ECO Idling Stop, an application in Okuma’s next-generation energy-saving system, ECO suite, has won the MM Award 2016 (Handling/Automation Category).

The MM-Awards are given by Maschinen Markt (MM), a highly-respected manufacturing industry journal centered in Germany, to outstanding and innovative products and new technologies in various fields. This is the fifth time Okuma has won this award.

With ECO Idling Stop, the machine itself determines whether cooling is necessary and stops the idling of coolers while maintaining stable accuracies. The energy consumed during non-cutting times is greatly reduced with the precise stopping of coolers.

The ECO suite system achieves machine tool energy savings with four applications, including ECO Idling Stop.
