Been looking for one machine that can handle your most demanding jobs? With our award-winning LASER EX Series, that do-it-all machine has arrived.
By combining the power of the Okuma's legendary machine craftsmanship with cutting-edge laser technology, we've built next-generation super-multitasking machines that combine subtractive and additive functionality. That means you have metal hardening, coating capabilities, and start-to-finish production at your disposal, all within a single machining center. While traditional metal cutting will always have it's own place, to compete in today's market the ability to multitask isn't a luxury—it's a necessity.

With our LASER EX Series, you can open up endless possibilities on your shop floor, and for your sales team.

What does super multitasking machine technology offer?
Endless possibilities.

• Multitasking lathes
• Five-axis vertical machining centers
• Horizontal two-turret lathes
• Laser metal deposition
• Laser hardening
• Up to 4 kilowatts of power per machine
• Up to 6 machines powered by a single laser unit
How would we describe a machine like this?
As the ultimate manufacturing problem-solver.

• Additive and subtractive capabilities within one machine
• Ability to repair parts without disrupting normal production
• Ability to inspect parts throughout production
• More unique part geometries become possible
• Easy and efficient repairs
• New selling opportunities
Why doesn't it utilize Laser Metal Fusion (LMF)?
Because Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) has more benefits.

• Controlled vacuum in machining is not required
• You can inspect the part mid-process
• Coolant use in work envelope is acceptable
• Faster than powder bed fusion
• Materials can be swapped mid-process
• Can build in three dimensions as opposed to two

Welcome to next-generation metalworking.

As the ultimate process-intensive machines, the LASER EX Series offers additive AND subtractive manufacturing capabilities. This is just the beginning; more products are in the pipeline, but here is what's possible today:
Laser Metal Desposition (LMD):
Now you can supply powder from nozzles and perform laser melting and bonging to parent material, different types of materials can be combined and multilayered, and three-dimensional fabrication, repairs, and coating is attainable.
Laser Hardening:
Heating takes place via laser emission (with hardening by self-cooling), while case hardening is also possible. In the end, there's less warpage than with high-frequency or flame hardening.
Resin Mold Repairs:
From crack removal to finishing, all operations are available on a single machine. The LASER EX Series even accommodates hard-to-cut and high-hardness materials.
Process-Intensive Turn Hardening and Grinding:
Now cutting and grinding interrupted by heat treatment can be completed on a single machine with no set-up change. Uniform-width turn hardening uses a high-output, stable laser; case hardening is possible on cylindrical surfaces—with no uneven hardening and little warpage.
