High-Speed Machining to New Levels
The Okuma MB-V series sets the bar for efficiency and utility when machining die/mold parts, providing exceptional return on investment when producing parts for manufacturers in various industries. Built on Okuma’s Thermal Friendly Concept, this machine series provides impressive thermal stability and zero table overhang allow for tight tolerances and extreme accuracy. The construction is based on solid FEM analysis and a rapid spindle traverse with Hi-G acceleration. The ability to add 4- and 5-axis capabilities makes this machine extremely versatile. With a low table position and an ergonomic front-access design the MB-V series requires minimal floor space and no hydraulic fluid. For die/mold operations, the optional Super-NURBS function, a specially developed speed control function for processing curved surfaces, is greatly effective in reducing cycle time and improving quality by generating smoother tool movement, resulting in more efficient machining at maximum speeds. The MB-V series features the operator-friendly THINC®-OSP control - a true PC, Windows-based platform with open architecture, plug-and-play USB capability and 40GB of memory - allowing easy connectivity of complementary and peripheral equipment.
Available in 3 table sizes and a variety of optional features and specifications, the MB-V series can be configured to meet almost any small to medium die/mold application.
