The New Standard in 5-Axis Machining – the Okuma GENOS M460V-5AX
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (January 15th, 2019) – Okuma America Corporation announces the debut of the new 5-axis, GENOS M460V-5AX vertical machining center, combining a full 5-axis simultaneous control with rigid, cast iron, double-column construction and a high-speed spindle. These features give this CNC machine the ability to easily cut a variety of complex parts and exotic metals with speed and precision.
Key Features of the GENOS M460V-5AX
- Spindle: The spindle motor design produces less vibration and power loss at the tool tip for excellent surface finishes
- Pre-Tension Ball Screws: High precision ball screws generate smooth roller guide movement to all three axes and allow for better control of the machining process
- Solid Trunnion: Using a hypoid gear drive, the sturdy trunnion has outstanding accuracy, rigidity and table rotation speed
- OSP Control: Okuma’s open architecture machine control is PC based and allows customization for optimum machining performance
- Thermo-Friendly Concept: Designed and built to be thermally stable to compensate for ambient temperatures around the machine and heat generated during machining – enabling increased accuracies
- 5-Axis Auto-Tuning System: Maintains precise machining and easily fine tunes the machine by measuring geometric errors and automatically adjusting as needed
The GENOS M460V-5AX delivers machining excellence through a small machine footprint, rapid feed rates, precise cutting and smooth surface finishes. For more information on Okuma’s newest 5-axis VMC visit: https://www.okuma.com/genos-m460v-5ax-1/.
