The SMX5100L is the largest machine in the series, with a maximum turning diameter of 32.7-in. and maximum turn length of 120.1-in. Click image to enlargeDoosan Machine Tools latest addition, the PUMA SMX5100L twin-spindle, multi-tasking turn-mill center, completes complex parts in a single setup.

The SMX5100L is the largest machine in the series, with a maximum turning diameter of 32.7-in. and maximum turn length of 120.1-in. Chuck sizes of 15-in., 18-in. and 21-in. are available for the standard main turning spindle, which features a 49.6 hp built-in motor that spins at 2,400 r/min.

An optional gear box spindle that rotates at 1,500 r/min and outputs an impressive 4,198 Nm (3,096 ft-lb) of torque handles heavy duty applications.

The B-axis milling head features a Capto C8, powered by a 49.6 hp motor that rotates at 10,000 r/min. The backlash-free and highly rigid roller gear cam mechanism that drives the B-axis produces of 2700 Nm (1,991 ft-lb) of torque.

Minimized thermal deformation is achieved via strategically placed sensors throughout the machine, which offer real time measurement and adjustment of the axes. For added stability and speed, the Z-axis is supported by three rows of cross roller linear guideways.

Along with the largest machining space among the same-class machines, the PUMA SMX line comes standard with ergonomic features that enhance operator convenience and efficient maintenance. FANUC five axis machining software, which offers 600 blocks of look ahead and optimized servo acceleration/deceleration, is now built into the SMX Series control.
