Okuma adds the 2SP-2500H CNC lathe to its line of a smart machines. The innovative front-facing twin spindles provide significantly higher levels of productivity and far greater reliability in mass production, especially for automotive parts. The compact automation-ready machine provides excellent floor space utilisation and integrates two lathes into one unit with a standard loader for continuous front and back work. The latest entry in Okuma’s 2SP-H Series of two-spindle CNC lathes is designed to provide consistent quality in mass production while increasing efficiency through process-intensive machining and automation. The lathe enables stable unattended production over long runs via a high-speed loader feeding blanks. Due to the machine’s unique design, the loader is able to enter the 2SP-2500H regardless of the turret’s position. Since turret retraction is not necessary, workpiece transport and changeover times are greatly reduced.
