Doosan's new RPS is designed to improve capacity of its NH 500 HMC, pictured aboveClick image to enlargeDoosan Machine Tools has introduced a new multi-level rotary pallet system (RPS) for its NHP 4000 and NHP 5000 horizontal machining centers.

This RPS system fits into the product line between the sophisticated Linear Pallet System (LPS) at the higher end of the automation spectrum and the single-level RPS, which is cost effective, but cannot be expanded if growth demands it.

The multi-level RPS holds up to 21 pallets (three layers of seven pallets) vertically to add capacity and consolidate fixtures for horizontal machining centers, which cuts down set up. time.

Its user-friendly HMI screen is located at the setup station and stores all the programs and tool data.
