Multitasking Turning Center Offers 100" Turning Length



Doosan Machine Tools America has introduced the new PUMA SMX 3100L tailstock model, which offers an extra-long turning length of 100" (2,540 mm). The model was officially launched in North America at IMTS 2016.

According to Doosan Region Manager Carl Barthelson, current manufacturing trends are exemplified in this new line. "Our customers are requiring machines to have more functionality to increase efficiency and accuracy and to conserve floor space," he said. "It is common to have one multitasking center machine all sides of a part in one set-up and replace multiple machine tools that have singular functions. The PUMA SMX series fulfills all of those needs."

Barthelson also said that the new line is a reflection of Doosan's larger product development approach, which is to research customers' needs and provide solutions, sometimes with specific niche applications in mind. "For example, the new PUMA SMX 3100L model has the new longer 100 inch turning length dimension as a direct result of listening to our customers," he said. "Many manufacturers in the aerospace and power generation markets need that extra capacity for their parts. Likewise for the medical industry, several companies in that market liked what we were doing in multitasking, but did not need such large equipment. So, we now have models that are ideal for medical and other smaller parts."

In addition to the highlighted Z-axis travel of 100" (2,540 mm), other key specifications of the PUMA SMX 3100L include a 4" bar capacity and a maximum turning diameter of 26" (600 mm) to support the turning of long, large diameter workpieces. A range of chuck sizes can be accommodated. The main spindle is powered by 40 HP, 3,000 RPM motors. The Y-axis travel is 11.8" (300 mm) and features the B-axis 12,000 RPM milling spindle that has a 0.0001° incremental accuracy control function and programmable C-axes. The Y-axis machining area has been maximized through an orthogonal design structure.

Features and materials have been designed and built in to provide high rigidity, accuracy, thermal compensation and optimal ergonomics. For example, Doosan uses the finite element method in structural design and minimizes thermal distortion with an oil cooler and an accuracy control feature based on multiple thermal compensation functions. In addition to using robust materials for mass, high rigidity and precision are also achieved through the use of roller-type linear motion components on all guideways. For operator convenience, the SMX machines allow tools to be loaded in the 80-tool magazine from the front, rather than from the side or rear. The FANUC 31i-B5 control panel moves from side to side and swivels, and its height may be adjusted for the operator's comfort and preference.
