IMTS Day 4 – New Machines for Making Better Parts

New announcements by Murata Machinery and Okuma.

Murata Machinery’s Muratec Turning Machines

MW35: An all-electric, compact turning center that can produce small parts in as little as three seconds. Features two spindles and is capable of simultaneous multi-tool cutting.

MW40: Designed for minimal thermal displacement during precise machining operations of smaller parts. Dual spindle design allows for flexible part processing. Available with live tooling and Y-axis milling capability. Also available with single or twin gantry loaders.

MW120: A twin spindle CNC turning center with high-speed gantry loader and turret axes. Capable of production times as low as 16 seconds per part.

MD120: An automated CNC turning center with live-tooling capabilities, including drilling and milling in every turret position. Features an integrated 3-axis gantry robot loader.


MT100: Opposed spindle machine with a built-in Y axis that allows for greater precision on complex parts. Each turret can serve either of the twin spindles. Upper and lower turret configuration allows the flexibility to manage two tools in a single cut while reducing cycle time. Available with a variety of automation options.

MT200: Similar to the MT100, this opposed spindle type machine can accommodate larger parts with a maximum turn diameter of 8.3” and an 8” chuck.

Okuma’s MULTUS B250II Multitasking Lathe

The MULTUS B250II multitasking CNC machine is equipped with a powerful, integral motor main spindle and high torque, milling tool spindle for process-intensive machining. The 15hp opposing spindle provides the capability to machine complex parts in a single operation resulting in fewer setups, reduced work in process and maximized machine use.

The machine makes effective use of floor space with its compact structure—while featuring a large machining area with a Y-axis travel of 200mm and maximum turning length of 750mm.

It is equipped with Okuma’s OSP-P300 control with single-mode operation and superior graphics suitable for novice operators as well as professional machinists.
