IMTS - Okuma’s MU-5000V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center Delivers Versatility and Superior Accuracy

Innovative VMC features high speed machining and maximum productivity in a compact footprint.

On display at Okuma Booth S-8500, IMTS 2016

Okuma's MU-5000V 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 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.

ROBOTMASTER V7

ROBOTMASTER V7

Since Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, for the first time, the power of Robotmaster can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it even easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. It is an intuitive tool that anyone could use, with or without robotics expertise. It bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
