Okuma’s new Genos M560-VA features a larger work envelope to machine an assortment of parts

A high column design, CAT 40 spindle and intelligent technologies enhance this CNC machine’s ability to cut a variety of exotic metals.

The new Okuma Genos M560-VA-HC vertical machining center, combines a high column design and CAT 40 Big-Plus® spindle to cut large, complex parts. The larger work envelope minimises restrictions on workpieces, tool lengths and the rotary table. A highly rigid, thermally-stable, double-column construction gives this CNC machine the ability to withstand thermal deformation, resulting in improved machining performance. It’s also one of the heaviest machines in its class.


A powerful 22kW spindle with 146 ft. lbs. of torque allows this machine to cut challenging metals such as titanium and Inconel as well as stainless steel and aluminium. A separate automatic tool changer door makes tool changing seamless without interrupting the machining process. The table moves only in Y, while the spindle moves in X and Z, enabling a smaller machine footprint, rapid feed rates, precise cutting and smooth surface finishes. Coupled with a user-friendly design and energy-saving technology, the Genos M560-VA-HC truly delivers machining excellence.

The maximum machining volume is 1 050mm x 560mm x 460mm, the table size is 560mm x 1 300mm, the maximum load capacity is 900 kilograms, the spindle speed is 15 000rpm and the rapid traverse is XY 40 m/min and Z 32 m/min.

Thermo-Friendly Concept, Okuma’s proprietary thermal deformation compensation technology is standard on this machine. Pretension ball screws and bi-directional spindle cooling allow for better control of the machining process. Optional Collision Avoidance and Machining Navi Intelligent Technologies are available.
