, the exclusive distributor of DN Solutions (formerly Doosan) and Zayer machine tools in the UK and Ireland, has launched a new simultaneous five-axis machining centre.
The DN Solutions’ DVF 4000 is the latest addition to the company’s best-selling DVF-series and, with its compact size and comprehensive technical specification is considered ideal for component manufacturers looking to improve their productivity and process efficiencies.
The new machine is powerful, fast, flexible and reliable and is an ideal solution for the efficient processing of parts that require multiple machining operations and it reduces the number of set ups required to machine such parts to completion. The machine is supplied with a 12,000rev/min (BT 40) directly-coupled spindle as standard, powered by an 18.5kW motor that generates 118N-m of torque.
The Fanuc 31i-Plus control enables the DVF 4000 to be used in full simultaneous five-axis machining mode with advanced contouring capabilities. It is also equipped with a 400mm diameter, built-in rotary tilting table with a zero-backlash roller gear cam design that delivers improved speed and reliability.
Productivity and process efficiencies are further enhanced with the five-axis machining centre’s 60-tool, servo-driven automatic tool changer and an integrated thermal compensation system, comprising six sensors strategically located within the machine, that combat thermal drift issues in real time. Roller LM guideways deliver improved speed and rigidity, and linear scales on the machine’s X, Y, and Z axes and rotary scales on its B and C axes, ensure accurate positioning and repeatability.
Mills CNC’s CEO Tony Dale concluded: “A fantastic addition to what is already a market-leading five-axis machine tool range. The compact DVF 4000, available at a competitive price, provides component manufacturers with a highly-functional five-axis machine tool solution that will help transform their machine shops’ productivity, performance and profitability.”
