Okuma launches the VTR-160A double-column turning center
Class-best machining capacity, class-smallest thermal deformation
21 Jul 2009
In today's world, environmental protection and economic stimulation have become major issues. This has given rise to demand for more highly efficient, environmentally-friendly production equipment in industrial fields related to mass transit development and energy efficiency. To meet these needs, Okuma has developed the VTR-A Series of large vertical turning centers with double-column structures.

The VTR-A Series is based on our highly rigid, highly accurate, and highly acclaimed double-column machining centers. Large diameter cylindrical roller bearings and thrust bearings are used in the turning spindle (table) for stable support of heavy workpieces, while the milling spindle is an integral motor/spindle in a square 250 mm highly rigid ram structure. That provides for low vibration and highly accurate spindle rotations.

Machining dimensional changes over time from thermal deformation are also minimized with Okuma's unique Thermo-Friendly Concept.

High machining capacity inherited from Okuma's double-column machining centers
