Chicao, Illinois – Members of the management team at Okuma America Corporation are pleased to announce the launch of a new 5-axis vertical machining center to its machining line-up! This new machine – the GENOS M560V-5AX – builds upon the foundation of the company’s flagship vertical machining center series (GENOS M Series) by bringing 5-axis capabilities to the table! This product is making its world debut in the Okuma booth (#338500) at the 2022 International Manufacturing Trade Show at McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois, on September 12 – 17, 2022.

The new GENOS M560V-5AX is an impressive next-generation product evolved from two of the company’s best-selling vertical machining centers – the GENOS M560V which has become a standard-bearer in the industry, and the GENOS M460V-5AX which launched in 2017 as an answer to a market need for an affordable, compact 5-axis vertical machine, with no compromise on the design or accuracy.

Machine Design

The GENOS M560V-5AX is built with a double-column machine design, affording it maximum structural integrity. The machine offers an impressive working envelope with a 500mm table and wide axis travels (X: 1,050 mm, Y: 560 mm, Z: 460 mm), while still maintaining a compact footprint of 2,515 mm x 3,750 mm. Further optimizing the machine’s design, the GENOS M560V-5AX includes a trunnion table positioned parallel to the front of the machine which allows for easier access to the table and good visibility during machining. This, and other user-friendly features on the machine, reduce physical burden on the operator. Additionally, the machine comes standard with a 60 ATC (automatic tool changer) magazine and can also accommodate tools measuring up to 400mm in length.

Built-In Energy Savings Features

The GENOS M560V-5AX comes standard with Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept, an on-board thermal and energy management technology to support both stable, high-accuracy machining and reduce energy consumption.
