Okuma‘s VTM-2000YB multitasking CNC turning center is built to handle heavy-duty turning and cutting of large parts.

Okuma’s VTM-2000YB multitasking CNC turning center is built to handle heavy-duty turning and cutting of large parts. The extreme rigidity and powerful cutting capabilities of this machine make it ideal for machining large-diameter workpieces, such as those in the aerospace and energy industries. The vertical workholding design delivers high precision and accuracy and offers the advantage of “natural” part handling and excellent chip fall, while taking up minimal floor space.

The VTM-2000YB takes the concept of the VTM-200YB and advances the design to increase rigidity, power, B-axis range, speed and accuracy. It uses Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly concept to enhance thermal stability and has powerful turning and milling capabilities with 0.001-degree B and C axes. This CNC turning center has 1.6 meters of Y-axis travel, combines turning and milling functions for large parts in the same machine and includes a 36-tool ATC for tool changing.

Methods Seeks the Perfect Machining Environment

With its new Precision Center, Methods Machine Tools is locking down environmental variables that could impact machining processes. Why? So North American manufacturers will no longer need to send parts, tooling and material to Japan or somewhere else to have intricate, sensitive or challenging test cuts performed.
