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.

  • The Value Of Probing On Turn-Mills

    Part probing isn’t performed as often on turn-mills as it is on conventional machine tools. It does offer advantages for multitasking machines, though. Includes video.

  • 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.
