Okuma will make use of the grand stage at EMO Hannover (16-21 September 2019, hall 27/D26) to present highly efficient solutions for the mould and die industry. One highlight will be the newly developed double column machining centre MCR-S (Super) for high-precision 5-sided machining of large workpieces. The industry’s only single-source provider will present a large number of CNC machine tools, software solutions and intelligent controls.

New double column machining centre for highest demands

The new double column machining centre MCR-S (Super) combines several state-of-the-art features and is predestined for producing dies of the highest quality. Manufacturers benefit from outstanding dimensional accuracy and a very high surface quality. The machine’s robust double column layout ensures stability and provides vibration dampening properties. As the manufacturing process of dies is very vulnerable to temperature changes, Okuma equipped the MCR-S with the Thermo-Friendly Concept. A swivel image sensor allows for precise measuring at the cutting edge and ensures that all production steps are traceable. Hyper-Surface makes manual post-processing obsolete and shortens the time needed for processing the raw material. The machine offers very high chip removal rates and achieves outstanding 710 cm/min when face milling.

Rich portfolio for the mould and die industry

In addition to double column machining centres, Okuma offers a large variety of machine tools of great value to the mould and die sector. At this year’s EMO Hannover, Okuma will also display the affordable 5-axis machining centre GENOS M460V-5AX and the newly developed and smallest vertical machining centre GENOS M660-V-E. Another highlight will be an MB-46VAE equipped with STANDROID, the latest solution for automation. STANDROID is a robotic arm installed in a cell. This enables easy setup and integration into the production environment making automation accessible for small and medium sized businesses where conventional technologies would be too expensive and overly complex. Visitors will also find Okuma’s renowned high-tech multitasking machines of the MULTUS U and LASER EX range.
