Okuma unveils new bridge mill CNC machine

Okuma has unveiled a new bridge mill CNC machine – the M8-80V.

The management team of Okuma America Corporation is pleased to announce an expansion to its robust line of CNC metal cutting machines with the debut of a new bridge-style machining center – the MB-80V.

This new product offers extreme machining flexibility due to its uniquely-combined vertical and double-column machining capabilities.

The sophisticated design of the MB-80V is based on Okuma’s industry-leading double-column machining center platform, complete with moving table functionality.

With this durable platform as a foundation, the Okuma product development team added an integrated vertical spindle to the design, making the MB-80V one of the industry’s few true bridge mill machines.

Other design features of the impressive MB-80V include:

  • A large working table size to accommodate larger work pieces – 63” x 41”
  • Compact footprint commands less floor space than similar models
  • Two integrated spindle options: CAT40 BIG-PLUS /HSK63 or CAT50 BIG-PLUS
  • Thermal controls throughout the entire machining process
  • Cyclonic filtration system
  • Smart ergonomic design allows for easy table and spindle access

These features afford a series of machining benefits including:

  • minimized cycle times due to a combination of cutting capabilities within one bridge mill machine;
  • easy access to key machining areas by the operator for quicker set-up times; and
  • maximum production capabilities due to the performance of trusted Okuma machine spindle performance.

The MB-80V was designed in response to the market need for a high-performance, highly versatile CNC machine for applications most commonly found in die-mold, automotive, aerospace, and semiconductor industries.
