New MILLAC 852V II Vertical Machining Center Provides High Rigidity and Heavy Cutting Ability

Vertical machining center from Okuma is well suited for machining large, heavy work pieces.

Charlotte, N.C. (October1, 2014) – Okuma’s new MILLAC 852V II vertical machining center, represents the pinnacle of large machining centers with high rigidity, heavy cutting ability and high operability. The strong base column construction has optimally-placed ribs to counter chatter and twisting during heavy-duty cutting. Traditional box ways are used for all axes to provide high accuracy and rigidity over the long term.

With the use of variable speed gear head and large-diameter spindle bearings, this vertical machining center can perform heavy-duty cutting and high speed machining with high torque from low to high speeds. The X, Y, Z travels and large table designed to withstand heavy loads are well suited for machining large, heavy work pieces.
