Okuma’s Multus U Series general purpose multitasking CNC lathes are designed to reduce setup time, improve accuracy and keep non-cutting time to a minimum. The series includes two machine sizes: the Multus U3000 and the Multus U4000. The series of lathes is equipped with a comprehensive package of the company’s Intelligent Technologies (thermo-friendly concept, collision avoidance system and Machining Navi) and a variety of efficiency features.

These lathes are excellent for machining process-intensive parts, such as those in aerospace, oil/energy, medical and construction, and provide a complete multitasking solution.

A highly rigid traveling column allows for powerful cutting along the entire Y axis, the company says. There are 17 variations in specs, including multiple bed lengths, optional subspindle (W axis) and optional lower turret. They are designed for highly efficient cutting of difficult-to-machine materials and a variety of CNC machining applications. The company provides long, stable machining accuracy with thermo-static design and thermal deformation control technology. Machining Navi, which is optional, maximizes tool performance by choosing the optimal speed(s) at which the machine can avoid chatter.
