Okuma’s VTM-1200YB 5-axis multi-tasking turning center

Multi-tasking turning center performs multisided machining.

Designed for large part CNC machining Okuma’s VTM-1200YB 5-axis multitasking turning center is ideally suited for large turning/milling requirements and complex parts. Its massive construction provides extreme rigidity for large part CNC machining and its high power handles large diameter workpieces with ease.

This turning center cuts shapes of all kinds, going instantly from turning to slope multitasking. It can perform turning, vertical, horizontal, and angled surface machining in one operation without reorienting the part in the chuck. With operator control of spindle direction in relation to the surface of the workpiece, side cutting with straight end mills can be used to dramatically reduce cutting time compared with point cutting using ball end mills.

The work spindle is supported at two locations by large diameter roller bearings offering precision control for the production of complex parts. The spindle’s geared head generates high torque capable of sustaining the heavy cutting necessary for parts such as large valve bodies. The machine’s vertical design provides the advantage of “natural” part handling and excellent chip fall, while using a minimum of floor space.

Packaged with Okuma’s OSP suite control system, plus advanced, high-accuracy 5-axis CNC machining technology (including Thermo-Friendly Concept for thermal stability), the VTM-1200YB turning center is an excellent choice for the large, complex components in aerospace, energy and other industries.

Key specifications of the VTM-1200YB CNC turning center are maximum cutting diameter of 1 200mm, maximum cutting length of 1 080mm, XYZ travels of 1 270 x 1 000 x 1 080mm, rapid traverse of 32m/min and milling spindle power of 30/22kW.
