Okuma America Corporation’s MU-8000V-L vertical machining center is suited for five-axis, multi-sided machining. This VMC features standard ball-screw cooling and a highly rigid left-right, mobile trunnion table that supports high precision and intense cutting power. The low center of gravity in workpiece movement gives this machine the ability to machine difficult materials and a wide range of workpieces.

This product is available with a standard No. 40 or No. 50 spindle, providing a configuration for nearly any five-axis job. An in-machine coil chip conveyor allows for safe, reliable chip discharge. The company says that the close proximity of the spindle and control panel and easy access to the workpiece eases the user experiences for the operator.

Okuma says that the machining center achieves maximum productivity with a wide array of automation options. The design places the pallet changes at the back of the machine, providing connection to a Palletace flexible manufacturing system, pallet pool, large capacity ATC and robots to deliver high productivity and accuracy.

Users can equip the MU-8000V-L with Okuma’s Super-NURBS function, enabling high feed rates and smooth finishes. Optional Machining Navi monitors cutting conditions and displays optimal spindle speed to eliminate chatter. Five-axis auto tuning achieves higher accuracies by automatically measuring and correcting machine misalignments in minutes.

Okuma says that the thermo-friendly concept and collision avoidance system ensures that this five-axis machining center performs consistently from the first part to the last, regardless of warm up time or ambient temperatures, and it ensures that the machine is protected from potentially harmful crashes.
