Okuma’s MA-12500HW Horizontal Machining Center with New W-Axis is Ideal for Cutting Exotic Materials
DATE: August 1, 2016
The combination of speed and power on the MA-12500HW is well suited for large part aerospace machining.
The hallmark of the MA-12500HW is its ability to provide a good balance of speed and cutting power for machining difficult-to-machine materials, cast iron and aluminum alloys. This makes it well suited for large part aerospace machining. The W-axis allows for a longer tool stroke to machine complex, difficult to reach part features. It has a maximum tool length of 1,100 mm. At IMTS 2016 the MA-12500HW will be shown with the new W-axis option and in skeleton form. It will feature a cutting simulation of a steel construction frame.
Key Features of Okuma’s MA-12500HW Horizontal Machining Center Built on an integral bed and base, and designed with reinforcing ribs for increased stability and load carrying capacity, the MA-12500H incorporates Okuma’s exclusive Thermo-Friendly Concept to achieve maximum thermal stability and accuracy.
