Doosan Machine Tools has announced the addition of the DMP 500/2SP to its line of vertical machining centers. Equipped with two spindles and two automatic-tool-change (ATC) systems, this new model was designed for production job shops and high-volume parts manufacturers.
Compared to single-spindle machining centers, the DMP 500/2SP effectively doubles productivity by machining two parts simultaneously, as well as greatly reducing work loading, unloading and idle times. For reduced setup times, the right spindle features a W-axis adjustment of 20mm (0.8 in), allowing compensation for any variability in fixture heights between spindles.
12,000 RPM direct drive spindles with 87 lb ft of torque are standard, and 8,000 RPM spindles with 211 lb ft of torque are optional. The load capacity (1,763 lbs.) and table size (47 x 20.5 inches) easily accommodate a variety of workpieces and fixtures, and together with the 20.5 inch Y axis stroke, offer a machining space well suited for a range of parts.
Dual 24-tool capacity magazines are standard, and 30-tool and 40-tool magazines are optional. The dual ATCs boast 1.7 second tool-to-tool times, keeping the tools in the cut longer.
"Built to machine high volume parts with great efficiency, the DMP 500/2SP delivers extreme value with its high productivity, compact size and excellent reliability," said Jim Shiner, Director of Sales and Marketing at Doosan Machine Tools America. "It can output the work of two machining centers in a smaller footprint with considerably less capital investment."
