The new Genos M560-VA-HC vertical machining center combines a high-column design and CAT 40 Big- Plus spindle to cut large, complex parts. The larger work envelope minimizes restrictions on workpieces, tool lengths and the rotary table. A highly rigid, thermally-stable, double-column construction gives this CNC machine the ability to withstand thermal deformation, resulting in improved machining performance. It’s also one of the heaviest machines in its class. At IMTS this machine will be shown cutting a steel engine cylinder and will showcase Machining Navi anti-chatter technology.

A powerful 30-hp spindle with 146 foot-pounds of torque allows this machine to cut challenging metals such as titanium and Inconel as well as stainless steel and aluminum. A separate automatic tool changer door makes tool changing seamless without interrupting the machining process. The table moves only in Y, while the spindle moves in X and Z, enabling a smaller machine footprint, rapid feed rates, precise cutting and smooth surface finishes. Coupled with a user-friendly design and energy-saving technology, the Genos M560-VA-HC truly delivers machining excellence.

Thermo-Friendly Concept, Okuma’s proprietary thermal deformation compensation technology, is standard on this machine. Pretension ballscrews and bi-directional spindle cooling allow for better control of the machining process. Optional Collision Avoidance and Machining Navi Intelligent Technologies are available.
