Okuma’s MU-8000V vertical machining center is excellent for five-axis, multi-sided machining. This VMC features standard ballscrew cooling and a highly rigid left-right mobile trunnion table that supports high precision and impressive 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.

At IMTS 2016, the MU-8000V will be shown cutting a titanium blisk and demonstrating cryogenic machining with 5ME, a member of Partners in THINC.

This workhorse is available with a standard No. 40 or 50 spindle, providing a configuration for nearly any five-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 ease of use for the operator.

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-8000V can be equipped with Okuma’s exclusive 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’s Thermo-Friendly Concept and Collision Avoidance System are standard Intelligent Technologies to ensure this five-axis machining center performs consistently from the first part to the last, regardless of warmup time or ambient temperatures, and the machine is protected from potentially harmful crashes.
