ELIMINATE OIL / COOLANT MIST & SMOKE VMC Enables Precise Five-Axis Machining Okuma's MU-5000V vertical machining center is suited for five-axis, multi-sided machining. The VMC is available with a 40- or 50-taper spindle, providing a configuration for many five-axis jobs. Ballscrew cool- ing and a rigid left-right mobile trunnion table support high-precision and heavy-duty cutting, the company says. The low center of gravity in workpiece movement enables it to machine difficult materials and a range of workpieces. An in-machine coil chip conveyor safely and reliably discharges chips. Users can integrate the machine with automation systems to maximize productivity. The machine's design places pallet changing at the back of the machine for easy connection to a Palletace flexible manufacturing system, pallet pool, large-capacity automatic toolchanger (ATC) and robots. The VMC can be equipped with the company's Super-NURBS function, enabling high feed rates and fine finishes. The optional Machining Navi monitors cutting conditions and displays optimal spindle speed to eliminate chatter. Five-Axis Auto Tuning increases accuracies by automatically measuring and correcting machine misalignments in minutes. The company's Thermo-Friendly Concept and Collision Avoidance System ensure that the machine performs consistently regardless of warmup time or ambient temperatures and protects it from potentially harmful crashes. Close proximity of the spindle to the control panel and easy access to the workpiece improves ease of use. | Okuma America Corp. | 704-588-7000 okuma.com
