New series of compact five axis VMCs
- September 19, 2018
Doosan Machine Tools has introduced the DVF Series of compact five axis machining centres.
The DVF Series is among the company’s lineup of vertical machining centres specifically designed for cutting diverse and complex shapes.
The DVF 5000 comes standard with an 18,000 rpm integral 40 taper spindle. A FANUC 31iB5 CNC controller makes full five axis simultaneous control possible, giving complete contouring capabilities. It also features a 500 mm (19.68 in) diameter – with a 630 mm (24.8 in) option – built in rotary table. Available table supports allow a maximum weight of 880 lbs (399 kg) and minimize any table deflection. The rotary table is designed for user friendliness and consummate work efficiency, minimizing interference as the part is machined. Doosan also offers a DVF 5000 five face version with a FANUC 0iMF CNC controller and a 12,000 rpm directly-coupled spindle.
The DVF 8000 is a larger full five axis machining centre that incorporates many of the features of the DVF 5000, but has a larger (800 mm/31.5 in diameter) rotary table which can support a maximum weight of 3,086 lbs (1,399 kg).
Each machine comes with a 60 tool servo driven automatic tool changer that can be expanded up to 120 tools, giving the customer more tooling to tackle complex parts that have varying profiles. An oil cooled spindle controls heat to minimize thermal issues. The DVF Series also incorporates roller LM guideways for speed and added rigidity. The machines’ compact footprint allows installation where floor space is limited or comes at a premium.
These VMCs offer a diverse range of tailored options and automation that make them ideal for unmanned machining. They come automation ready and supplied with an optional/retrofittable AWC (Auto Workpiece Changer) which provides additional productivity by offering up to 12 pallets to feed the machine for unattended machining.
