Okuma’s Genos M560-V vertical machining center combines a high column design and CAT 40 Big-Plus spindle to cut large, complex parts. The larger work envelope minimizes restrictions on workpieces, tool lengths and the rotary table, the company says.

A rigid, thermally-stable, double-column construction enables the withstanding of thermal deformation. A 30-hp spindle with 146 foot-pounds of torque allows it to cut metals such as titanium and Inconel as well as stainless steel and aluminum. According to the company, a separate automatic toolchanger door makes tool changing seamless without interrupting the machining process.

The table moves only in Y, while the spindle moves in X and Z, enabling a smaller machine footprint, rapid feed rates, precise cutting and smooth surface finishes, the company says.
