Okuma America Corp.’s Multus U3000 is a general purpose, multitasking two-saddle CNC lathe designed to reduce setup time, improve accuracy and keep non-cutting time to a minimum. The lathe provides a platform for long-term rigidity and accuracy and can machine process-intensive parts, such as those in aerospace, automotive, oil/energy, medical and construction. 

The lathe has a maximum machining diameter of 25.6” and bed length of 39.4” and is equipped with a Okuma’s Intelligent Technologies and a variety of efficiency features. Optional five-axis machining is available for complex milling operations. It also comes equipped with the OSP-P300 control with a 19” monitor and the OSP suite and ECO suite applications.

    My behind-the-scenes tour on the shop floor of Baker Industries began and ended with its Emco Mecof PowerMill, one of the biggest five-axis machining centers in the United States. The tour also shed light on the company’s highly aggressive approach to new equipment purchases.

  • B-Axis Turn/Mills Have Their Place

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.

  • Multitasking's "Big" Advantage

    As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
