Doosan Machine Tools has announced the addition of the DMP 500/2SP to its line of vertical machining centers. Equipped with two spindles and two automatic toolchangers (ATCs), this model is designed for production job shops and high-volume parts manufacturers.
Compared to single-spindle machining centers, the system effectively doubles productivity by machining two parts simultaneously, reducing work loading, unloading and idle times. For reduced setup times, the right spindle features a W-axis adjustment of 20mm, allowing quick compensation for any variability in fixture heights between spindles.
Direct-drive, 12 000rpm spindles with 116 Newton Meters of torque are standard, and 8 000rpm spindles with 211 foot-pounds of torque are optional. The load capacity is 800kg and the table size is 1 200mm x 520mm, easily accommodating a variety of workpieces and fixtures. With the 520mm Y-axis stroke, it offers a machining space well suited for a range of parts. X and Z travels are 1 040mm and 600mm respectively.
Dual 24-tool capacity magazines are standard, and 30 and 40 tool magazines are optional. The dual ATCs boast 1.7 sec. tool-change times, keeping the tools in the cut longer.
