Eilbeck Cranes install another Okuma machine, this time an Okuma Vertical CNC Lathe model VTM100 to increase their output.

"Eilbeck purchased the Okuma VTM100 and LB4000 due to their robust build, power and ability to turn EC’s wheels and axles taking large cuts without any issue.  It also goes without saying, the Okuma support and training is a major factor why we keep on buying Okuma machines, they really are second to none." Charlie Eilbeck, EILBECK CRANES.

Okuma Vertical Multitasking Machine Model VTM100

The Okuma VTM-100 three-axis vertical turning center combines the benefits of a vertical lathe with those of a machining center. The 50 taper 36-tool magazine enables this machine to offer both turning and milling operations on a single platform. It is the ideal machine for efficient low volume parts production, including valve bodies and work that requires heavy milling. The box way construction and wide, angular slideways on each axis provide high rigidity for accurate machining. A vertical axis counterbalance assures smooth, stable feed at all speeds. The headstock is fixed to the base, minimizing the influence of thermal changes and vibration on cutting accuracy. In addition, the VTM-100 is available with a wide range of standard accessories, including a spindle orientation function.
