Vastly Improving Productivity of Machining Difficult-to-Cut Materials with
Extraordinary Cutting Capability
Large Vertical CNC Lathe
Okuma Corporation has developed the vertical CNC lathe VT1000EX that achieves extraordinary productivity of machining difficult-to-cut materials. This unit has the highest machining capability in its class due to its highly rigid mechanical configuration so that the cycle time for difficult-to-cut materials is reduced drastically. In addition, the reduction in cycle time means that CO2 emissions are reduced.
The VT1000EX will provide a new level of productivity to a wide range of markets that have to deal with difficult-to-cut materials. These markets include the energy sector, especially wind power generation which is in the focus of attention with the accelerated movement towards decarbonization, and the aerospace sector which is starting to recover.
