Global Machine Tools: New models and technology at EMEX 2020

Coming off a record sales year in 2019, Global Machine Tools will be exhibiting its new CNC machine tool, 3D printing technology and cutting Tools at EMEX2020.

Feature machine: Doosan DVF5000 5-axis machining centre

The DVF5000, Doosan Machine Tools’ next generation 5-axis compact machining centre, offers a diverse range of tailored options, automation and maximum convenience, enabling unmanned machining. As such, it is part of the company’s lineup of multitasking machines designed for machining diverse and complex shapes.

The DVF5000 is rigidly built and equipped with an 18.5KW / 12,000RPM directly coupled spindle (18,000RPM built-in option) and will be exhibited at EMEX with a Doosan-spec’d Fanuc 31iMB5 controller.

The machine boasts 40m/min rapid traverse rates on X,Y & Z-axes and equipped with linear roller guideways for improved accuracy and high rigidity. The 500mm table is designed for user-friendliness and consummate work efficiency, while the motor for turning the B & C Axes features a spur gear for enhanced anti-abrasion and durability. Nodular cast iron has been applied to the entire structure to prevent structural sagging, while the addition of supports makes it possible to machine workpieces weighing as much as 400kg, one of the highest in its class.

With a number of DVF5000’s successfully installed already and a backlog yet to install, Global Machine Tools says the DVF5000 is fast becoming New Zealand’s 5-axis machine choice.

Feature machine: Doosan Puma 2600Y high precision CNC millturn centre with Y-axis

The Puma 2600Y is a box guideway, high performance, Y-axis turning centre designed to craft high precision parts from a range of tough-to-machine materials. The bed is designed for excellent rigidity and accuracy.

A standard active thermal compensation system features six sensors that collect the temperature at each location and feeds into the machine control to compensate for structural changes caused by heat growth, decreasing the effects of thermal deformation by 60-70% compared to previous models.

At EMEX you will see great features including a heavy-duty 22KW 3500RPM Spindle with 10” Big Bore chuck and 81mm bar capacity. The turret is 24 station (12 Live) with 7.5KW, 5000RPM milling capability and BMT65 interface.

Other Doosan machines GMT will feature at EMEX2020 include its best-selling DNM4500 high-speed vertical machining centre and the new Leo 1600 economical hig- performance turning centre.
