New MA-8000H Horizontal Machining Center for Large Parts at IMTS

The leadership team at Okuma America Corporation has introduced the MA-8000H to the company's horizontal machining center lineup. This new CNC (computer numeric control) machine was designed for greater productivity when manufacturing large parts, without compromising machining capacity, reliability or accuracy.

The MA-8000H will make its first appearance in the Americas at IMTS in booth 338500. Okuma experts will be available to demonstrate the machine's many features and capabilities.

The MA-8000H horizontal machining center is a versatile machine designed for a wide range of machining applications from heavy-duty to high-feed machining. "The machine's large work envelope and expansive travel ranges (X axis: 1,400 mm, Y axis: 1,200 mm, Z axis: 1,350 mm), coupled with a highly rigid bed and cast-in ball screw mounts for highly accurate drive and positioning, make the MA-8000H suited to cut medium-to-large workpieces. Additionally, powerful spindle options effectively handle materials across the metal spectrum," said an Okuma spokesperson.

The MA-8000H is engineered with Okuma's proprietary Thermo-Friendly Concept, a feature that is designed to eliminate thermal deformation during the machining process. The machine also includes an integrated thru-spindle coolant suction feature to mitigate excess coolant usage when machining functions have abated. Additionally, the machine is equipped with an enhanced chip evacuation system with in-machine washing and a new sludgeless coolant tank design that reduces coolant replacement cycles and tank maintenance needs.

At IMTS the MA-8000H will be equipped with Okuma's next-generation energy management technology-ECO suite plus. This new smart technology helps to manage energy usage of the machine and peripheral devices, ultimately reducing CO2 emissions. The ECO suite plus technology will now become available on all Okuma machines.

The MA-8000H has been thoughtfully designed to adopt automation systems such as Automatic Pallet Changers (APCs), Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) and a variety of robotics to enhance productivity even further.
