Okuma brings automation solutions to life

At the AMB 2022 in Stuttgart, Okuma will be presenting innovative automation solutions for a wide range of applications. Among the highlights are Okuma’s GENOS M560-V-e vertical machining centre, the horizontal MB-4000H machining centre, the MULTUS U4000 2SW 1500 milling and turning centre and the vertical 5-axis GENOS M460V-5AX machining centre with a robot solution.

Okuma’s GENOS M560-V-e will be a real highlight: The vertical machining centre is being exhibited at the AMB Stuttgart exclusively as a skeleton version without covers. This gives visitors an excellent insight into the design and structure of the machine. It has an extremely stable double column construction, a fast, durable spindle, and a table size of 1,300 x 560 mm to meet the highest requirements in tool and mould making. At the same time, its high thermal stability ensures exceptional precision, while the intelligent OSP suite makes control simple and convenient. Its powerful performance is improved even more with various machine options such as a tool length measuring device, chip conveyor or zero point and workpiece measurement.

Precise machining

Top productivity, high speed, and cost-effectiveness – even with small workpieces: The horizontal MB-4000H machining centre that is also on display at the AMB in Stuttgart has these advantages. The machine has an integrated tool magazine with up to 326 tool spaces as an option. On top of that, the option of the turn-cut function can be used to ensure that the MB-4000H can handle turning operations with high precision. This then opens up further possibilities including machining asymmetric workpieces. Additional added value is provided by the pallet changer that ensures flexibility and allows set-up in parallel to production time.

Future-proof automation

Okuma is supplementing the extensive range of machines at booth 10C71 by two additional automation solutions. Process-intensive complete machining of small to large batch sizes is made possible with the OKUMA MULTUS U4000 2SW 1500 milling and turning centre. It offers maximum turning performance of up to 4,200 rpm and achieves a milling performance of 12,000 rpm with the milling spindle thanks to the stable structure of the machine and the particularly powerful main and counter spindles. The MULTUS U4000 2SW 1500 can be extended by the 6-axis robot cell which optimises the efficiency of the machine with automatic gripper change and drawer magazine with five trays.

Okuma will be demonstrating the vertical 5-axis GENOS M460V-5AX machining centre as an additional machine with a robot solution, especially designed for manufacturing high-precision parts. It allows powerful, precise 5-axis machining. Equipped with the 5-axis auto-tuning system, a hypoid drive in the rotary and swivel axes and Okuma's own thermo-friendly concept for thermal stability, it facilitates automated 5-axis measurement. The GENOS M460V-5AX only takes up a small amount of space thanks to its compact design and stands out by being extremely cost-effective. It demonstrates its advantages at the AMB in combination with the 6-axis robot. It offers, among other things, automated pallet and product loading, automatic gripper change and much more.
