HMC Turn-Cut Function Eliminates Need for Secondary Turning

Turn-Cut enables users to turn features on large, unbalanced parts on the same platform where standard CNC machining functions are performed, eliminating the need to purchase special-purpose machines, tooling, fixtures or add-on components. simplifies fixturing and reduces set up time.
Turn-Cut processes work on Okuma MA and MB series of horizontal machining centers without the need to use secondary machinery for a turning application. In some cases, it can also be retrofitted to an existing Okuma machining center.

5-Axis HMC is Right Sized for Small Aerospace Parts

The a61nx-5E differentiates from other similar 5-axis horizontal platforms through its innovative pallet-change system, advanced twin-direct-drive rotary table design, and availability of a high-power 24,000 rpm spindle. The result is a highly productive, right-sized solution that can provide up to 310 cu in of metal removal per minute.
The a61nx-5E from Makino is uniquely sized for small components, featuring 3D contours without compromising the highly productive spindle performance and 5-axis capabilities of larger aerospace machines.

5-Axis HMC for Large Industrial, Energy and Aerospace Job Shop Production

The T1 spindle handles the challenges of titanium and nickel-based alloys. The torque and power of the 12,000 rpm spindle make it highly productive in the machining of non-ferrous, ferrous and hard-metal materials, putting shop owners in a unique position to deliver highly competitive machining solutions for workpieces of any shape and any material.
The rigid design, versatile cutting capabilities and sizable work envelope make the T1 5-axis horizontal machining center from Makino an ideal fit for machining both soft and hard metals.
