Okuma’s MA-12500H horizontal machining center will be on display for the first time at the 2014 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), Booth S-8500. The hallmark of this machine is its ability to provide a good balance of speed and cutting power for machining of aluminum alloys, cast iron and difficult-to-machine materials. This makes it well suited for large part aerospace machining. The MA-12500H is so fast and powerful, it’s the machine of choice for building lathes at the Okuma DS1 plant in Oguchi, Japan.
