Okuma's new MCR-BV double column machining centreClick image to enlarge

Okuma has launched the new MCR-BV double-column machining centre.

The MCR-BV is the seventh entrant in Okuma’s double-column machine range.

Designed 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 per cent thicker than previous models, all of which is ideal for large-part machining.

A large 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.
