JPM’s Okuma Genos M560-V Three-Axis Vertical Machining Center is top-of-the-line in the Okuma Genos M series of three-axis vertical machining centers. Its specifications are solid evidence of its powerful capabilities.

The Okuma Genos M560-V Three-Axis Vertical Machining Center is a highly rigid, thermally-stable machine that withstands thermal deformation. This reduces thermal growth and improves machining performance.

A unique Collision Avoidance System is built into the M560-V. As machines become more complex, involving additional axes, automation, and setup changing, there’s more room for human error. Many applications and development tools concentrate on the cutting and forget about the hazard of collision.

Okuma’s Collision Avoidance System (CAS) integrates 3D modeling of its machines, blanks and tooling with the power of the THINC-OSP Control to create a virtual machine. By running the real-time virtual application seconds ahead of the actual cutting, problems can be detected early and the machine stopped before a costly collision.

CAS generates the actual and exact shape of the materials milliseconds ahead of a cut to confirm that no interference takes place. Virtual Modeling requires exacting dimensions and definitions that only Okuma can deliver because it manufactures the machine and custom-creates its applications.

Machining Navi, an Okuma invention, is also built into the M560-V machining center. Chatter is fairly common in the world of CNC machining. Okuma Machining Navi chooses optimal speed(s) at which the machine can avoid chatter, thereby saving operator time and maximizing productivity.

The Thermo-Friendly Concept is another feature of the M560-V. Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept combines control technology and machine design to both minimize the amount of heat generated and deal with the heat that cannot be eliminated. Coupled with extremely accurate thermal deformation compensation, the benefit is unrivaled dimensional stability over long, continuous runs. No longer is time and money wasted warming the machine up and making manual adjustments for temperature changes.
