Doosan Demonstrated 6 / 8 Inch Class Compact Turning Center at IMTS 2016
In early 2016, Doosan Machine Tools America introduced its latest generation “Lynx 2100” series of turning centers that evolved from its popular Lynx 220 series. The new models were presented at IMTS 2016. An “M” version in the turning centers series offers milling capabilities offering the convenience, accuracy, and productivity that one setup machining provides.
“We believe this machine will generate a lot of interest at the show,” said Shane Richards-Product Support Manager, Turning Centers. “It’s a robust, compact package of power ideal for machining valves, shafts, gears, flanges, housings, bolts, and other metal parts up to a maximum turning diameter of 350 mm (13.8 in.) and length of 550 mm (21.7 in.).”
Offering the largest work area in its class, the Lynx 2100 series also includes a wider support structure for X and Z axes and tailstock traverse. The X and Z axes are fitted with highly rigid roller-type guideways. The Lynx 2100’s powerful 15kW (20 hp) motor provides ample power for turning outer and inner surfaces and U-drilling. The high power / high torque 6000 rpm turning spindle (with 6-inch chuck) 169 Nm (8-inch chuck) (124.7 ft.-lbs.) motor supports high precision and heavy-duty cutting. The sub-spindle function, also 6000 rpm, enables back-end machining of the workpiece. Full C-axis 0.001-degree control is included to optimize the capabilities of the machine.
The M model is fitted with Doosan’s BMT 45P 12-station turret to provide superior performance for milling operations. The turret uses an air/oil cooling system to minimize negative thermal effects.
Other compelling standard features include a work setting function with automatic measurement for easier and more accurate setup, a CNC tailstock operable by a single press of a button, and a tool monitoring function that provides helpful information about tool change times. Further, an alarm guidance function notifies the operator if there are any errors during operation- their cause and even the corrective action to take. The machine is under the control of the newly designed DOOSAN-FANUC l with a 10.4-inch display.
Any of the Lynx 2100 series turning center models can be equipped with several options including such peripheral equipment as a chip conveyor, bar feeder, parts catcher, tool setter, oil skimmer, and grease lubrication system among others.
Doosan Machine Tools started its business in 1976 and built its Changwon factory by 1979. Production of our first 1,000 units was achieved in 1980 after the introduction of the PUMA 10 series which was developed using our exclusive technologies.
