Okuma’s new video series demonstrates CNC machines used in gun part manufacturing, spotlighting high-speed, precision cutting, live tooling, milling and drilling. Okuma’s gun part manufacturing video series includes:

  • Rifle Stock Mold: Okuma’s five-axis MU-500VII vertical machining center cuts a custom-designed rifle stock mold
  • AR15 Upper: An MB-4000H horizontal machining center machines an AR15 upper
  • Gun Barrel Extension: Cut on an Okuma LB3000-EXII horizontal lathe, the machining of this gun barrel extension uses a variety of cutting tools and operations
  • Commemorative Plaque: Using a GENOS M460-VE, this video shows the CNC milling of a gun shaped plaque for a firearms event
  • 1911 Trigger Housing: Machining of a 1911 trigger housing, using an Okuma MB-56V vertical machining center equipped with a Lyndex Nikken rotary table
  • Gun Cylinder: A .50 caliber revolver cylinder is cut on an Okuma LT3000 EX, 3 turret horizontal lathe 

(Special Note: Some videos are filmed without the use of coolant, to better show the cutting capabilities of the machine, without visual interference. CNC machine operation without coolant is not recommended.)
