The Okuma Multus U series of multitasking lathes – New features for higher productivity

Satisfying the highest demands, the Okuma Multus U series of multitasking lathes are based on a solid orthogonal flatbed and are ideal for process-intensive and complete machining in complex applications. The enormous productivity of these multitasking machines has improved once again thanks to several new features.

Now equipped with the 5-axis auto tuning system the Multus U series is built to manufacture extremely precise components with high speed.

Two machine sizes are available: The Multus U3000 offers a maximum diameter of 650mm and bed length of 1000mm, while the Multus U4000 offers a maximum diameter of 700mm and bead length of 1500mm.


The series is capable of flexible CNC machining from all directions with a rigid traveling column that enables cutting along the entire Y axis. The lathes are equipped with Okuma’s thermo-friendly concept to enable stable machining accuracy with structural design and thermal deformation control. The design enables easy tool loading from the machine front, improved spindle access for faster setup times and smooth chip discharge for better flows, the company says.


The THINC OSP-P300S control is said to reduce keyboard operations and maximize uptime with its collision avoidance system. The series also can be equipped with Okuma’s Machining Navi for maximising tool performance by selecting optimal speeds to avoid chatter. Extended specifications, including 17 variations with multiple bed lengths, an optional W subspindle and optional lower turret, enable a range of applications.
