The Okuma Ace Center MF-46VA adopts a powerful double column structure together with an integral rotary 2-APC for high accuracy and high production in a compact footprint. Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept is standard on this machine for unrivaled dimensional stability over long continuous runs. The Okuma MF-46V is equipped with a high speed; high power 8,000 rpm spindle with a 15 hp VAC liquid cooled integral motor. This model incorporates a six-second rotary two pallet and a high-speed 20 position automatic tool changer and a 1,574 ipm rapid traverse, resulting in a powerful production capability.
As machines become more complex, there is more room for human error. Okuma’s Collision Avoidance System (CAS) integrates 3D modeling of their machines, blanks and tooling with the power of the THINC-OSP Control to create a virtual machine. By running the real-time virtual application seconds ahead of the actual cutting, problems can be detected early and the machine stopped before a costly collision.
CAS generates the actual and exact shape of the materials milliseconds ahead of a cut to confirm that no interference take place. Virtual Modeling requires exacting dimensions and definitions that only Okuma can deliver.
Chatter if fairly common in the world of CNC machining. Okuma Machining Navi chooses and optimal speed(s) at which the machine can avoid chatter, thereby saving operator time and maximizing productivity. Okuma invented Machining Navi, an optional function that uses the THINC-OSP control and sensors to monitor chatter. If chatter is detected, the function then either recommends spindle speed changes or automatically makes the spindle speed adjustments.
Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept combines control technology and machine design to both minimize the amount of heat generated and deal with the heat that cannot be eliminated. Coupled with extremely accurate thermal deformation compensation, the benefit is unrivaled dimensional stability over long, continuous runs. You no longer waste time and money warming machines up, thus requiring manual adjustments for temperature changes.
The Okuma Ace Center MF-46VA with the OSP-E100M control is a very fast compact designed two pallet machining center that is equipped with multiple safety and friendly features to satisfy your production requirements.
