Okuma America’s Multus U5000 two-saddle CNC lathe handles large parts for the energy and aerospace industries. The machine is said to provide a sturdy platform for machining large, process-intensive parts.

The company says a highly rigid traveling column enables powerful cutting along the entire Y axis for flexible CNC machining from all directions. Larger bed lengths, subspindle and lower turret configurations are available. The machine is designed to turn or mill challenging materials for a range of large-scale applications with optimum efficiency.

The machine is available with the company’s Thermo-Friendly concept, which is said to provide long-term, stable machining accuracy via structural design and thermal deformation control. Its OSP-P300SA control reduces keyboard operations by 50 percent, shortens setup time, and maximizes uptime with its collision avoidance system, according to the company. The machine features easy tool loading from the machine front, improved spindle access for faster setup times and smooth chip discharge for efficient chip removal.

At the show, the machine will be equipped with a W-axis and big-bore spindle, and will be shown cutting a wind turbine crankshaft.
