Vertical Machining Center
The recent CNC Technology Showcase held at the American headquarters of machine tool builder Okuma America Corporation (Charlotte, NC) featured 26 CNC machines, five seminars, and opportunities to learn how to improve productivity using CNC technology. Cutting demonstrations were held on most of the CNC machines, including the MCR-BIII double-column machining center performing heavy milling on A36 steel, the new MU-10000H 5-axis horizontal machining center cutting an aircraft part, a butterfly valve, and a rotary engine block. The GENOS M-460 vertical machining center cut parts from titanium 6AL4V and composite materials and the MB-4000H horizontal machining center, connected to an AMPS flexible manufacturing system, cuts a variety of parts, including Inconel (using a ceramic end mill), steel, and aluminum.
