Doosan compact VMC designed for lean manufacturing cells

Doosan Machine Tools has added the DNM 4000 to its line of vertical machining centers (VMCs).

The compact VMC is designed for lean machining cell applications where space is tight, but productivity and cutting performance are essential.

Able to make aggressive cuts, the VMC is designed for machining small parts in tough-to-machine materials for a range of industries including medical, aerospace, automotive, firearms and die/mold manufacturing. Featuring a 12 000rpm, 18.6kW, 40-taper spindle with 116.6Nm of torque and a standard Big-Plus dual-contact interface, it delivers short cycle times, quality surface finishes and long tool life.

The workspace features travels of 520mm in the X axis, 400mm in the Y axis and 480mm in the Z axis. The two-door design provides a large opening width, enabling easy operator access. The coolant system is located in the rear of the machine, enabling the DNM to be placed inches from the neighbouring machines.

Other features for the system include a 20-tool capacity magazine with a 1.3 second tool-to-tool time, a spindle cooler, Doosan’s Smart Thermal Monitoring software, a grease lubrication system and 1 600kpa through-spindle coolant. The Fanuc i control with Easy Operation Package software developed by Doosan provides numerous functions designed for convenient operation and reduced setup time.
