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.
