The New 5-Axis DVF 5000
Doosan Machine Tools featured the DVF Series of compact 5-axis machining centers. The DVF Series takes its place in the company’s lineup of vertical machining centers specifically designed for cutting diverse and complex shapes.
The DVF 5000 comes standard with an 18,000r/min integral 40 taper spindle. A FANUC 31iB5 CNC controller makes full 5-axis simultaneous control possible, giving complete contouring capabilities. It also features a 500mm diameter (630mm option) built in rotary table. DVF 5000 offers a diverse range of tailored options and automation that make them ideal for unmanned machining. They come automation-ready and supplied with an optional/retrofittable AWC (Auto Workpiece Changer) which provides additional productivity by offering up to 12 pallets to feed the machine for unattended machining.
PUMA SMX2600ST, a multi-tasking turning center featuring enhanced efficiency by adding lower turret
Doosan Machine Tools demonstrated its PUMA SMX super multi-tasking turning centres, which come with a lower turret for enhanced versatility and productivity. The turret is available on both the 10” chuck (PUMA SMX2600ST) and 12” chuck (PUMA SMX3100ST) models.
Doosan’s PUMA SMX Series is a twin-spindle, multi-tasking turning centre built for completing complex parts in a single setup. Both turning spindles feature 0.0001° resolution on the C-axis for high precision contouring. The PUMA SMX series features a new turning and milling function equipped with a 12-angle high-rigidity servo-driven turret, in addition to the left and right spindles, B axis, and multi-purpose milling function, giving it a more powerful multi-tasking machining ability, while machining time can be reduced by up to 75% when producing small numbers of diverse items. In addition, turning, end milling, face milling, drilling, and tapping performances allow the operator to speedily machine every desired shape.
