Five-axis machine demonstrates aerospace precision

As exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, Mills CNC will showcase the DVF 5000 simultaneous five-axis machine at Southern Manufacturing 2019. A demonstration will machine a complex, high precision aerospace component.

The compact, rigidly-built machine provides simultaneous five-axis machining capability. It will be exhibited equipped with a powerful 17.5kW/12,000rpm directly-coupled spindle, A 22kW/18,000rpm built-in spindle option is also available.

The machine will be equipped with Heidenhain iTNC640 control, although models can also be specified with the latest Fanuc or Siemens control.

Rapid rates of 40m/min can be achieved on the x-, y- and z-axes. The machine is also equipped with integrated automation provided by a six position auto-pallet work-changer and a generous servo-driven ATC that can hold up to 120 tools with a 1.3 second too-to-tool changeover time.

Linear guides and an integrated thermal compensation system mitigate against the effects of thermal drift.

The machine on show will have a 500 x 450mm table with a maximum table load of 400kg but it can be supplied with a larger table (630 x 450mm) if required.
