The GX 1000 OSP machine is unique to the Bridgeport family of mills as it incorporates the Okuma OSP P300 CNC control, encoders, motors, and drives. The GX 1000's popularity has risen over the years as a true workhorse in the industry, and with the addition of the OSP P300 control this machine can offer even more performance capabilities! The Bridgeport GX 1000 OSP was designed to ensure customers with years of accurate and reliable machining performance. A stiff and thermally stable spindle, rigid C-frame fixed column design, and fixed pre-tensioned double nut ball screws on all axes are just some of the standard design characteristics that our customers have grown accustomed to.
