DN Solutions bridge-type VMC built for cutting performance, accuracy

DN Solutions (formerly Doosan Machine Tools) has introduced the BVM 5700, the latest member of its family of vertical machining centers (VMCs). The BVM 5700 weighs 7 700kgs with a structure built for cutting performance and accuracy. With its bridge-type construction, and single-direction moving table, DN Solutions notes that customers can handle heavier parts and cut with increased rigidity. Its design and sheer mass also reportedly provide excellent dampening characteristics that offer high-quality 3D machining surface finishes where precision surface finish is demanded. The BVM 5700 shines in production prototype environments.

To optimise precision and productivity in a VMC, DN Solutions combined a bridge frame structure, delivering more stiffness, along with better accuracy and speed, and minimised thermal expansion with a 15 000r/min built-in spindle that is powered by a 37kW motor that outputs 214N of torque. This enables high feed rates when machining aluminium, or heavy cuts in tool or mould steel.

The company’s goal for the BVM 5700 was to give end-users everything they needed right out of the box. Among the standard features offered are AICC II with Smooth Surface Package, which is said to benefit anyone performing high-speed machining or contouring applications. There’s also a machine condition selection function with a spectrum of accuracy or speed for dialling in the ideal setup. The smart thermal control actively compensates for temperature fluctuations through a series of sensors placed throughout the machine. Also standard is a Fanuc 0i Plus controller with a 15″ touchscreen and iHMI.

The XYZ travels are 1 050mm by 570mm by 460mm and the XYZ rapid traverse rates are 42/42/36m/min. The table size is 1 300mm by 570mm and it can take a load of 1 000kg.
