Control History:-
          The Okuma Sampling Path (OSP) Control, the foundation upon which THINC is built, is a robust control design that uses industry standard components to simplify servicing. In the past 40 years, OSP has seen 17 iterations, each adding power, performance and ease of use. Movement to a PC platform allows THINC to keep pace with business technology enabling continual upgrades without a complete control overhaul. Every element has been designed so the control can continue to grow with PC technology and still perform reliably. This makes THINC a technologically and financially effective control solution.
