September 22, 2016 – Okuma’s MU-4000V is designed for 5-axis multi-sided machining and is well suited for the aerospace and die/mold industries. It provides process intensive machining combined with turning and 5-axis multitasking machining. It features the OSP-P300A control from Okuma, which includes new apps and widgets, a motion control system and a reduction in start-up time.
This machine features a large work envelope and substantial base in a compact footprint. Its design boasts a machine mass of 9,700kg and the B-axis trunnion is supported so there is no overhanging mass. Fully supported axes construction allows for a broad scope of spindles ranging from 12K to 25K RPM to efficiently handle complex and difficult to machine materials.
The unique and automation friendly design places the pallet changes at the back of the machine, allowing easy connection to a PALLETACE flexible manufacturing system or pallet pool. ATC’s can be configured to meet growing demands with 32 to 64 tool chain magazine systems and 64 plus matrix cabinets.
Built using Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept, this 5-axis machining center performs consistently from the first part to the last, regardless of warm up time or ambient temperatures. The standard 5-Axis Auto Tuning System automatically measures and compensates for up to 11 geometric errors to ensure precision machining.
