Okuma, represented in Sweden by AB Sigfrid Stenberg, adds the 2SP-2500H CNC lathe to its line of a smart machines. The innovative front-facing twin spindles provide significantly higher levels of productivity and far greater reliability in mass production, especially for automotive parts. The compact automation-ready machine provides excellent floor space utilisation and integrates two lathes into one unit with a standard loader for continuous front and back work.

The latest entry in Okuma’s 2SP-H Series of two-spindle CNC lathes is designed to provide consistent quality in mass production while increasing efficiency through process-intensive machining and automation. The lathe enables stable unattended production over long runs via a high-speed loader feeding blanks. Due to the machine’s unique design, the loader is able to enter the 2SP-2500H regardless of the turret’s position. Since turret retraction is not necessary, workpiece transport and changeover times are greatly reduced.

With 5,000min-1, the lathe’s turning spindle offers the fastest spindle speed of its class. The 2SP-2500H offers unrivalled floor space utilisation with the smallest-in-class machine width of 2,200 mm. Despite its compact dimensions, the machine features an impressive maximum turning diameter of 250 mm.

The 2SP-2500H is 20% faster than previous models. With a maximum spindle speed of 6,000min-1 and a doubled max motor output of 7.1 kW, the machine’s milling capabilities are on par with that of a small machining centre. Other applications include powerful face milling, drilling and tapping.

Okuma’s Intelligent Technology application Thermo-Friendly Concept minimises thermal deformation and enables supreme accuracy. A tool life calculator predicts the remaining time before an exchange is required and prevents cutting edge breakage, thus reducing costs.
