Five-Axis Machine Features Large Work Envelope

August 31, 2016 /

Okuma’s MU-400V is a five-axis multi-sided machining center suited for the aerospace and die/mold industries, featuring a large work envelope and fully supported B-axis trunnion. The axes’ design supports a range of spindles from 12,000 to 25,000 rpm.

The machine places the pallet changes at the back of the machine, enabling easy connection to a Palletace flexible manufacturing system or pallet pool. Automatic toolchangers can be configured with 32- to 64-tool chain-magazine systems and 64-plus matrix cabinets.

The MU-4000V can be equipped with the company’s Super-Nurbs function and performs consistently from the first part to the last, regardless of warmup time or ambient temperatures, the company says. The standard five-axis Auto Tuning System is said to automatically measure and compensate for as many as 11 geometric errors.
