The new configuration will be attractive to job shops that need to add capacity to their machine Click image to enlargeDoosan Machine Tools' multi-level RPS (Rotary Pallet System) works with Doosan’s NHP Series horizontal machining centres, specifically the NHP 4000 and NHP 5000.

It holds up to 21 pallets (three layers of seven pallets) vertically. The new configuration will be attractive to job shops that need to add capacity to their machine or require an affordable, more compact pallet system to consolidate fixtures that may be feeding their horizontal machining centres.

Its user-friendly HMI screen located at the setup station communicates with the CNC that operates the horizontal machining centre.

The main CNC also stores all the programs and tool data. Another benefit to the matchup is the modular approach used in the NHP series, allowing expansion of the tool magazine from the standard 60 all the way up to a 275-tool matrix.

This means an operator can load enough tools to machine all the pallets stored on the RPS.
