A new range of high-performance, box guideway lathes has been announced by DN Solutions. The next-generation 8-10 inch chuck (67mm to 81mm bar diameter) DNT Puma 2100/2600 lathe series are inherently flexible and provide manufacturers with impressive turning capacity and capabilities of up to 460mm maximum turning diameter and up to 658mm maximum turning length). The new series’ comprise eight models in total and all deliver leading cutting performance combined with fast and accurate part processing.
Fundamental to the machines’ performance is their rigid design and build featuring box guideways on all axes which helps prevent vibration and, as a consequence, ensures high part accuracies, longer tool life and improved surface finishes even during heavy-duty machining operations.
Spindle power and speeds vary (up to 26kW and 4 500rpm) and are model dependent. A high torque option (378Nm) for the DNT 2100M lathe is available. DNT lathes feature 10-12 station servo-driven turrets for fast (0.15 seconds indexing time) and accurate tool selection. Driven tooling models are supplied with the highly-rigid BMT 55P or 65P (base mounted) turret that can accommodate 5.5kW/6 000-10 000rpm rotary tools and facilitate fast and precise milling, drilling and tapping operations.
To ensure the machining of longer workpieces, and to increase the machines’ flexibility and versatility, DNT lathes are equipped with manual, programmable or servo-driven tailstocks. The new lathes are supplied with the DN Solutions Fanuc i Plus control that features a 15” touchscreen iHMI that is both intuitive and attractive, enabling quick and easy operation.
