    I have worked for Mori Seiki and Okuma dealers as the Service manager for both. Both very good quality machines, but there are differences.
    1. Mori parts availability beats Okuma hands down. No contest here.
    2. Okuma has a very nice control, however, replacement parts are $$$ compared to Fanuc/Mits and the new Mori Maps is close.
    3. Mori seems to do a better job at automation, and high speed. (plus you can get extra Mcodes without going through all the Okuma hoops.
    4. The Taiwan Okumas seem to be just a little lower quality, where all Mori's are still built in Japan.
    Bottom line, both are very good. Okuma 4 axis lathes are easier to use, Mori mills blow the Okumas away. My prefrence is usually Okuma turning, Mori milling.

    In my humble opinion Bridgeport, Hardinge, and Haas should not even be on this list. I have worked on most everything cnc and have worked for an Okuma dist so i have good all around knowledge. I would agree with underthetire, Okuma for turning, Mori for milling, and then there is everything else i guess. I would own a Haas before i would own a Mazak, thier service is absolutley horrid. Just my opinion. If you are talking laser cutting machines then hands down no question Trumpf. Punching, Amada, bending Cincinnati.

    I have both Mori and Okuma. Both are high quality machines. If I had to choose just one - it'd be Mori. Parts and service are right on.

    To me, Mori and Okuma are absolute TOPS. You just can't get any better. I've had both and have all good things to say. My shop currently has a 1983 Okuma LB15 lathe and a 1986 Mori-Seiki SL3-H lathe along with a Pratt & Whitney Tri-Mac Machining center. The Okuma and Mori I've worked on since they were new, and bought them when the shop that owned them went under. Reliable and accurate.

    The P&W has actually been quite good, but it's really made by Hamai of Japan. Other than a bit slow, it's been a workhorse.
