Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly technology reduces heat in the machining process and compensates for any ambient temperature changesClick image to enlargeThe new MCR-S double column machining centre (DCMC) from Okuma America Corp., roughs and finishes press dies in one setup.

Designed for heavy duty machining of process-intensive press dies, it features full five face and five axis machining and is excellent for die repair work.

It accommodates a wide range of stamping die requirements making it an ideal fit for the automotive and aerospace industries. It can easily handle hardened cast iron, nonferrous and exotic materials.

One setup process achieves a 25 per cent reduction in cycle time compared to similar models by utilizing faster cutting feed rates and spindle speeds and eliminating the process-intensive steps of manually finishing a die.

Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly technology reduces heat in the machining process and compensates for any ambient temperature changes, allowing for continuous long runs without comprising accuracy. 

The Hyper-Surface feature detects and automatically compensates for surface disturbances in the part program to eliminate streaks or stripes for a high-quality surface finish and die-alignment processing reduces concave/convex die-alignment times.

Multi-Tasking: Is it Right for Your Shop?

For manufacturers looking to achieve that competitive edge, you can do no better than a multi-tasking machine. They eliminate the need for separate milling and turning machines, multiple set-ups and, most importantly, they improve productivity.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.
