Okuma America Corp.’s Multus U3000 is a general purpose, multitasking two-saddle CNC lathe designed to reduce setup time, improve accuracy and keep non-cutting time to a minimum. The lathe provides a platform for long-term rigidity and accuracy and can machine process-intensive parts, such as those in aerospace, automotive, oil/energy, medical and construction. 

The lathe has a maximum machining diameter of 25.6” and bed length of 39.4” and is equipped with a Okuma’s Intelligent Technologies and a variety of efficiency features. Optional five-axis machining is available for complex milling operations. It also comes equipped with the OSP-P300 control with a 19” monitor and the OSP suite and ECO suite applications.

  • The Upside of Vertical Turning

    Vertical turning centers that use the main spindle to load and unload themselves are finding increasing acceptance as multitasking capabilities make them efficient processing centers for producing chucked parts.

  • The Evolution of the Y Axis on Turn-Mill Machines

    Introduced to the turn-mill machine tool design in about 1996, the Y axis was first used on a single-spindle, mill-turn lathe with a subspindle. The idea of a Y axis on a CNC originated from the quality limitation of polar interpolation and the difficulty in programming, not from electronic advances in controls or servomotor technology as one might commonly think.

  • Software Simplifies Turn-Mill Operations

    An international player in the highly competitive aeronautics, automotive, defense and optical industries makes the most of software for multitasking program verification and optimization.
