Innovative VMC features high speed machining and maximum productivity in a compact footprint.
Okuma’s MU-5000V-L vertical machining center is excellent for 5-axis multi-sided machining. Standard ball-screw cooling and a highly rigid left-right, mobile trunnion table support high precision and heavy-duty cutting power in a compact footprint. The low center of gravity in workpiece movement gives this machine the ability to machine difficult materials and a wide range of workpieces. At IMTS this machine will be shown cutting a diffuser for the aerospace industry on stainless steel.
This workhorse is available with a standard No. 40 or 50 spindle, providing a configuration for nearly any 5-axis job. An in-machine coil chip conveyor allows for safe, reliable chip discharge. Close proximity of the spindle and control panel in addition to easy access to the workpiece give this machine superior operator functionality.
Maximum productivity is achieved with a wide array of automation options. The unique design places the pallet changes at the back of the machine, allowing easy connection to a PALLETACE flexible manufacturing system, pallet pool, large capacity ATC and robots to deliver high productivity in addition to high accuracy.
The MU-5000V-L can be equipped with Okuma’s exclusive Super-NURBS function, enabling high feed rates and ultra-fine finishes. Optional Machining Navi monitors cutting conditions and displays optimal spindle speed to eliminate chatter. 5-Axis Auto Tuning achieves higher accuracies by automatically measuring and correcting machine misalignments in minutes. Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept and Collision Avoidance System are standard Intelligent Technologies to ensure this 5-axis machining center performs consistently from the first part to the last, regardless of warm up time or ambient temperatures and the machine is protected from potentially harmful crashes.
