New W-axis feature and on display at Okuma Booth S-8500, IMTS 2016 - Okuma’s MA-12500HW Horizontal Machining Center with New W-Axis is Ideal for Cutting Exotic Materials

The combination of speed and power on the MA-12500HW is well suited for large part aerospace machining.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., September 2, 2016 -- The hallmark of the MA-12500HW is its ability to provide a good balance of speed and cutting power for machining difficult-to-machine materials, cast iron and aluminum alloys. This makes it well suited for large part aerospace machining. The W-axis allows for a longer tool stroke to machine complex, difficult to reach part features. It has a maximum tool length of 1,100 mm. At IMTS 2016 the MA-12500HW will be shown with the new W-axis option and in skeleton form.  It will feature a cutting simulation of a steel excavator bucket union.
