Okuma America Corporation Launches New Double-Column Machining Center

By Okuma Press Release
Okuma offers its latest double column milling machine, the MCR-BV.

Okuma America Corporation announced on November 1 the debut of a new double-column machining center (DCMC). This new machine – the MCR-BV - is the seventh machine offered in the company's double-column machine line-up. 

Designed as a machine for five-face machining applications, the MCR-BV is also capable of five-axis contouring as well as five-sided heavy milling applications. These heavy-duty applications are made possible through features such as a powerful integral motor and spindle, an expanded work envelope, and a very rigid table which is 30 percent thicker than previous models, all of which is ideal for large-part machining, according to Okuma. A range of attachment heads are compatible with the machine, allowing for a wide range of unique part shapes to be created, as well as many multitasking machining functions to be performed. 

Additional machine features include a fast automatic tool changer (ATC) and a smaller, faster auto attachment changer (AAC), both of which allow this DCMC to greatly increase productivity while performing heavy cutting or high-accuracy finishing.

Table Size mm (in) 2,000 x 4,000 (78.74 x 157.48) to 3,000 x 12,000 (118.11 x 472.44)
