EMO 2019 / Okuma Novelties for the mould and die industry
Okuma will make use of the grand stage at EMO Hannover this year to present a variety of products for the mould and die industry.
One of Okuma's highlight will be the newly developed double column machining centre MCR-S (Super) for high-precision 5-sided machining of large workpieces.
The new double column machining centre MCR-S (Super) combines several features and is designed for producing dies of the highest quality. Manufacturers benefit from high dimensional accuracy and a great surface quality, according to the company. 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 high chip removal rates and achieves 710 cm/min when face milling.
In addition to double column machining centres, Okuma offers a variety of machine tools. The company will also display the affordable 5-axis machining centre Genos M460V-5AX and the newly developed vertical machining centre Genos M660-V-E. Another highlight will be an MB-46VAE equipped with Standroid. It 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.
Visitors will also find Okuma’s high-tech multitasking machines of the Multus U and Laser EX range.
