Manufacturer: Okuma America Corporation, Okuma Multis B300-W
The multi functionality of the Okuma Multus allows it to combine traditional turning operations and milling procedures’ which eliminates the need to swap the work piece from a lathe to a milling machine to complete the task required.

Benefits of the OKUMA MULTIS B300-W
It has a 5+1 axis system combined with a 40 Pot tool magazine which makes it a very versatile machine; these two features alone make almost endless options and tooling combinations. It features the industry’s first Collision Avoidance System software combined with Okuma’s THINC – OSP Control, this software can run the entire machining simulation and catch potential collisions before they create scrap.
A full range of cutting tips and tool holders are available for the machine, these are also programmable into the Collision Avoidance Software to ensure there is no scrap or down time due to catastrophic collisions.
