Okuma’s MULTUS U series general-purpose multitask CNC lathes are designed to reduce setup time, improve accuracy and keep noncutting time to a minimum. Built with Okuma’s heavy-duty construction, the MULTUS U series lathes provide a sturdy platform for long-term rigidity and accuracy. They are excellent for machining process-intensive parts, such as those in aerospace, automotive, oil/energy, medical and construction, according to the company.
The series includes two machine sizes: the MULTUS U3000 (maximum diameter of 25.6” and bed length of 39.4”) and the MULTUS U4000 (maximum diameter of 27.55” and bed length of 59.05”). The MULTUS U series CNC lathes are equipped with a comprehensive package of Okuma’s Intelligent Technologies (Thermo-Friendly Concept, Collision Avoidance System and Machining Navi) and a variety of efficiency features which make them “Intelligent Multitasking Machines.” The newest versions of these machines come equipped with the OSP-P300 control with a 19” monitor and the new OSP suite and ECO suite applications.
