CNC turning center handles large parts

September 4, 2014

Okuma offers the VTM-2000YB multitasking CNC turning center, which provides heavy-duty construction for machining of large parts, such as those in the aerospace industry. The vertical architecture offers “natural” part handling and excellent chip fall, while taking up minimal floor space, states the company.

The machine, which employs the manufacturer’s Thermo-Friendly Concept to enhance thermal stability, has turning and milling capabilities with 0.001-degree B and C axes. The turning center has 5.25 ft. of Y-axis travel, combines turning and milling functions for large parts in the same machine, and includes a 36-tool ATC for tool changing.
