Recognizing that each application is unique, Okuma provides a wide range of models with standard and optional features that enable you to tackle virtually any size or type of workpiece suited for vertical turning. The exclusive THINC-OSP control is easy to learn and operate, despite its versatility and power, and Thermo-Friendly design holds tight tolerances, often eliminating the need for additional finishing operations.
Okuma's single spindle series of vertical turning lathes increases productivity by providing stable machining of thin and odd-shaped workpieces. The box-type base and column make a highly dependable, highly rigid structure and the headstock with flange construction minimizes the effects of thermal deformation and vibration - ensuring stable accurate cutting.
Ideally suited for precision machining of large diameter workpieces such as brake drums and rotors, hubs and gears. The open architecture, PC-based Okuma THINC-OSP control operates two independent spindles for greater flexibility that improves productivity. These twin-spindle, 4-axis lathes have an extremely rigid vertical, box-shaped column that allows deep cuts at high RPM. Additionally, wide, square shaped saddle and cross slideways ensure high precision during all cutting operations.
Available options include live tooling on one or both sides and straddle tooling that enables simultaneous machining of both sides of brake rotors.
When you move up to a 24 inch wheel, it’s time to change your perspective. The LAW-V24 is a vertical, 4-axis machine that uses gravity to its advantage for excellent chip handling in the face of greater chip removal. While still maintaining the ability to turn the I.D. and O.D., the wheel position allows chips to fall directly down. The vertical position also improves stability when handling the heavier materials that come with larger wheels. The 4-axis cutting capability and available auto chuck changing system work to deliver short cycle times and greater overall productivity.
Quick and flexible 4-axis vertical wheel machine.
With a 50 taper, 36-tool magazine, the 3-axis VTM Series enables users to perform milling and turning in one machining center. Ideally suited for low volume production of parts that require heavy milling, VTM machines provide smooth, stable feed rates at all speeds. Rigid box way construction combined with wide, angular slideways on each axis insures accuracy, while the fixed-to-the-base headstock minimizes thermal deviations and vibrations.
A wide range of accessories is available to accommodate your specific needs.
This 5-axis machine tool saves users cycle times, labor costs and extends tooling life. For example, without repositioning the part in the chuck, you can perform turning, vertical, horizontal, and angled surface machining in one operation. VTM-YB also enables the operator to control spindle direction in relation to the surface of the work-piece, thus allowing side cutting with straight end mills to dramatically reduce machining time.
For greater precision when working on complex parts, large diameter roller bearings support the work spindle in two locations, while the geared spindle head produces the high torque necessary to sustain heavy cutting of large workpieces.
The Okuma App Store is meant to provide you, the user, with absolute freedom. Since the needs of each machine user are entirely unique, it only makes sense to let you develop apps to fulfill those unique needs, or use the ones that have already been developed and tested. The Okuma App Store allows you to:
