132 MMS January 2017 MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW Spotlight: Turning work envelope, making it ideal for cutting a vari- ety of large, heav y par ts. The machine's work envelope provides a maximum turning diameter of 36.22" plus 33.86" of swing over the saddle, enabling it to accommodate large, odd-shaped workpieces. Highly rigid construction and power- ful ballscrews generate slideway movement to both axes for precise machining. The lathe has a maximum swing of 39.37", and a range of 20 to 1,250 rpm. The V12 turret is said to enable ma ximum machining productivity when paired with effective chip discharge. Optional side or rear chip con- veyors can be placed to match discharge direction based on shopfloor requirements. Maintenance tasks are simplified with easy access to the air filter, hydraulic unit and coolant tank on the back of the machine. Okuma's Thermo-Friendly Concept is standard and automatically compensates for ambient temperature changes to maintain tight tolerances. Cycle times, lead times and energy costs are significantly improved with Okuma's open archi- tecture OSP-P300L control and Eco suite feature.
