Okuma America Corp.’s MA-12500HW horizontal machining center is suited for large-part aerospace machining and has a W axis that allows for a longer tool stroke to machine complex, difficult-to-reach part features. 

Okuma America Corp.’s MA-12500HW horizontal machining center handles difficult-to-machine materials including cast iron and aluminum alloys. This makes it suited for large-part aerospace machining. The W axis allows for a longer tool stroke to machine complex, difficult-to-reach part features and it has a maximum tool length of 1,100 mm.

The horizontal machining center is built on an integral bed and base, and designed with reinforcing ribs for increased stability and load carrying capacity. It incorporates Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept to achieve thermal stability and accuracy.

Standardly-equipped with a 50-taper 6,000-rpm, 60/50-hp spindle, it is also available with either a 12,000-rpm range spindle or 4,500-rpm heavy duty spindle.


  • HMC Offers Thermal Stability for Large-Part Applications

    Okuma says its MA-12500H horizontal machining center (HMC) is designed to balance speed and cutting power for machining aluminum alloys, cast iron and difficult-to-machine materials.

  • A Different Kind of Machining Center

    If one horizontal machining center is good, then three on a single platform should be better, right? That’s the thinking behind the Multicenter concept from Italian builder, Porta Solutions. It blends the volume production capabilities of rotary transfer technology with the flexibility of a machining center in a single platform.   

  • Five-Axis HMC for High Speed Machining

     The MU-10000H is the largest of the Okuma MU range of five-axis, high speed HMCs.
