Bridge Mill CNC and 3-Axis VMC Introduced

Okuma America Corporation has announced an expansion to its line of CNC metalcutting machines with the debut of a new bridge-style machining center, the MB-80V. Okuma has also announced the GENOS M660-V machining center, a 3-axis vertical machining center (VMC) featuring a large work table in a compact footprint.


The MB-80V is based on Okuma's 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," said a company spokesperson.

Other design features of the MB-80V include:

  • A large working table size to accommodate larger workpieces of 63" x 41"
  • Compact footprint requires less floor space
  • 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," said the spokesperson.

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


Okuma's new GENOS M660-V VMC combines a large work table in a compact footprint, CAT 40 BIG-PLUS spindle and Intelligent Technology to cut large, complex parts. An optional CAT 50 BIG-PLUS spindle is also available for heavy cutting jobs. The larger table minimizes restrictions on workpiece size and tool length while leaving ample space to add rotary tables.

"The GENOS M660-V is built with Okuma's Thermo-Friendly Concept technology, giving it the ability to withstand thermal deformation during the machining process," said the spokesperson. "It also eliminates the need for machine warm-up. Additionally, the rigid, double-column construction reduces vibrations for less wear and tear on critical machine components, enables optimum spindle speeds and increases accuracy for improved machining performance. It is also one of the heaviest machines in its class."

Key specifications of the GENOS M660-V:

  • Table size: 60.24" x 25.98"
  • Spindle speed: 15,000 RPM
  • Spindle motor power: 30/25 HP
  • Rapid traverse: XY 1,575 IPM; Z 1,262 IPM
  • Magazine capacity: 32 tools
  • Floor space: 119.49" x 130.91".
