Latest Doosan DVF 5000 simultaneous 5-axis machine makes its MACH Show debut and pulls in the crowds.
Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, showcased 16 advanced high-performance machines on its stand at MACH 2018.
A number of the machines exhibited were making their debuts at the Show, and amongst these was Doosan’s latest addition to its already impressive 5-axis machine tool portfolio – the DVF 5000.
The machine, as was the case with all the Doosan machines being showcased, proved popular during MACH and its addition has helped further substantiate Mills CNC’s position as a market-leading 5-axis machine tool provider.
The DVF 5000 is rigidly built machine and provides precision component manufacturers with full simultaneous 5-axis machining capability. The machine is equipped with a powerful 18.5kW/12,000rpm directly-coupled spindle. (An 18,000rpm built-in spindle variation is available as an option).
Initially the DVF 5000 will be available from Mills with the Heidenhain iTNC640 control. DVF 5000 models with Fanuc and Siemens controls will be available later in the year.
The DVF 5000 boasts impressive rapid rates (40m/min) on its X-, Y- and Z-axes to enable manufacturers to get down to business fast and is equipped with linear guides for improved accuracies. The machine features a 500mm x 450mm table with a maximum table load of 400kg but can be supplied with a larger table as an option (630mm x 450mm) if required.
To improve productivity the DVF 5000 has a servo-driven ATC that can hold up to 120 tools with a 1.3 second tool-to-tool changeover time.
Says Tony Dale, Mills CNC’s Technical Director:
“Precision, speed, process reliability and flexibility accurately sum up the credentials of the new Doosan DVF 5000 machining centre.
“Judging by the positive reception the new machine received at MACH, I am confident that the DVF 5000 will become a ‘must have’ machine for component manufacturers looking to improve their productivity, performance and profitability.”
