Leamington Spa-based Mills CNC
, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, has introduced a new, high-speed vertical machining centre into the market. The SVM 4100 has been designed to help manufacturers reduce part processing times, particularly when machining aluminium alloys and for the light-duty machining of steel components.
With fast acceleration/deceleration rates (0.72/0.6/0.6G on the machine’s X, Y and Z axis), impressive 1.3 sec tool-to-tool change-over times and boasting 36m/min rapids on all three axes, the SVM 4100 can dramatically reducing non-cutting times and, as a result, part cycle times as well.
The machine’s speed and power is further exemplified by its 18.5kW/12,000rev.min 95.5Nm directly-connected BT40 spindle which also features the Big Plus face and taper dual contact system, and an integrated thermal displacement correction system to ensure (and maintain) high accuracies even during long machining runs.
The SVM 4100 is also equipped with a generous-size worktable (920 x 410mm with a 600kg maximum table load which is said to be the largest machining envelope in its class.
This, in addition to its 30-tool position ATC, a grease lubrication system that eliminates the need for oil skimmers and reduces lubrication costs by up to 60%, the Doosan Fanuc i
Plus control with a 15in touchscreen intuitive and easy-to-use iHMI, and Doosan’s conversational and menu-driven Easy Operation Package (EOP) for improved process reliability and functionality.
The machine can be supplied with a range of options that include: an ATC Shutter that provides greater protection from chip ingress into the ATC area than the standard barrier brush system; TSC through-spindle coolant from 20bar to 70bar; tool and workpiece measurement systems; and different hinged or scraper-type chip conveyor systems.
The new SVM 4100 will make its UK debut at MACH 2022
with machines expected to be available to UK and Irish component manufacturers early next year.
