Okuma Horizontal Machining Centers

Okuma horizontal machining centers are engineered to deliver the exact power and precision required to meet any requirement. The Okuma design relies on a strengthened ball screw bracket, 3-point cooling for the Y-axis, intelligent chip handling, and Thermal Active Stability (TAS) to create the most stable and accurate horizontal machining centers on the market.

Okuma's broad range of lathes offers a variety of bore sizes, bed lengths and optional features, 427 combinations in all. This variety allows us to create custom lathe solutions capable of meeting any production need. Many parts can be completed on a single machine.
