Okuma America Corp.’s MA-600HII horizontal machining center incorporates high torque spindle options designed for high volume material removal rates. It’s available with a HSK-A100 20K spindle that boasts 50/55-kW power for everything from heavy-duty cutting to fine precision work on aluminum alloys, cast irons and difficult to machine materials, the company says. The MA-600HII allows for steady milling, boring, drilling and tapping of mass production parts to long, continuous cycles for die/mold applications.

According to the company, the machine has improved chip flushing, conveyance that keep chips flowing, and a 20 percent larger coolant tank capacity that allows for longer, continuous runs. Flexible manufacturing can be accomplished by adding 6-12 multi-pallet APC units and multiple matrix magazines that hold up to 400 tools. The ATC features a two-second tool change time and comes equipped with tool breakage detection.

The MA-600HII is constructed on a 58,000-lb frame featuring an integral bed and base with a rigid, stepped-back column.
