Okuma’s new 2SP-2500H CNC lathe

Features smart machine productivity in a compact footprint.

Okuma has launched the 2SP-2500H two-spindle CNC lathe, with innovative front-facing twin spindles to provide much higher levels of productivity and far greater reliability, for auto parts and other mass production applications. The 2SP-2500H is an automation-ready machine that integrates two lathes into one unit with a standard loader that feeds blanks for continuous front and back work.

By consolidating a twin-spindle lathe featuring machining capacity more powerful and accurate than before, with a quick-action loader, the machine is achieving extremely minimal production line times. Moreover, tool life duration can be predicted and cutting edge breakage prevented by the Tool Life Calculator, an Okuma suite app. To proactively avoid machine stoppage and make possible long unattended operations, “Maintenance suite” is a visual tool for the key maintenance activities. The machine width is the smallest in its class at 2 200mm, which all translates into high floor-space utilisation. Mainly for automotive parts up to ø250mm (Optional), this CNC lathe produces high-quality parts with high efficiency and accuracy.

A high-speed overhead gantry loader comes standard with this machine tool and enables long, unattended production runs. The machine’s unique design allows for easier access to tools by a modification to the turret orientation. Workpiece transport and changeover times are greatly reduced resulting in cycle time reductions of up to 17 per cent. This feature is available in a variety of configurations based on part size and weight.

The 2SP-2500H is a highly productive and a very reliable, smart machine. It is ready to support manufacturers striving to innovate their mass production applications.
