Doosan to highlight its revolutionary PUMA series of CNCs at IMTEX 2015
South Korean machine tool giant Doosan is all set to showcase its proven PUMA series of CNC’s at the upcoming IMTEX 2015 scheduled from January 22-28 in Bengaluru, India. The new PUMA 4100/5100 series is best suitable for the precision processing of mid-to-large industrial parts such as automotive shafts and oil/gas pipelines. The company will be demonstrating live action of its machines at Hall no 3A stall A102.
The new PUMA 4100/5100 series is equipped with the fastest and most powerful cutting capacity and the surest stability of any model in its class. Furthermore, its user convenience has been expanded considerably through a number of user-friendly improvements to its performance by the addition of new features. The new series is also equipped with a total of 24 models, so users can now choose chuck sizes of 12-inch, 15-inch, 21-inch or big bore class, and a maximum turning dia. Of 550mm & between centre lengths of one and two meters & also with option of Y-Axis on P5100 series.
Its high-capacity spindle of up to 45kW and its 2-speed gearbox structure ensure unrivalled power and machining capacity whenever heavy-duty cutting is required. The PUMA 4100/5100 also boasts markedly improved rotation precision of the C-axis, which directly affects the precision of milling processing, thanks to the attachment of a high-resolution BZi sensor.
Its servo-driven tool post has enhanced customer satisfaction and trust through a faster and more stable rotation of the tool post. The 2-axis equipment comes with a 10 or 12 station tool turret depending on the model, while the milling equipment is equipped with a 12-station tool turret, both as basic features. Most notably, through improvements to the gear structure of the tool drive motor used in milling processes, the milling tool has a maximum speed of 4,000 RPM, while reducing accompanying heat and noise by adopting Air + Oil lubrication technology, securing both performance and stability.
Moreover, the series has made it possible for users to expand its features – including the frequently used special thread functions, steady rest and long boring bar – without any modifications so that it can be adjusted to meet diverse industrial needs quickly and easily especially in the Oil & Gas sector.
Doosan entered the Indian market in the mid-1980’s (as DAEWOO earlier) and till date it has installed more than 4,500 No. machines in the Indian market. Doosan has been the preferred choice of machine across industries such as automotive, oil & gas, heavy engineering, pumps & valves, power & energy, aerospace among others with a wide dealer network covering sales and service activities across India.
