Doosan Demonstrated Compact Linear Pallet System at IMTS
Doosan Machine Tools America offers a wide range of automation devices to enable customers to extend machining time during staffed shifts and for the “lights out” operations. At IMTS the company’s “LPSll” linear pallet system, was fully functioning with high performance HP 5100ll horizontal machining center.
“We classify this system as ‘compact’ with a 12-pallet capacity serving one machine,” said Jim Im, Doosan’s Engineering Manager-Machining Centers. “We offer more extensive systems- some with up to 72 pallets. We designed the LPSll compact system with floor space concerns in mind.Many of our customers want to boost productivity but can’t add real estate so we wanted to be sure to bring this particular system to IMTS. Customers are generally surprised at how simple it is to integrate with one of our newer horizontal machining centers out in the field. Installation only takes about 5 days. It adds a remarkable level of continuous production, particularly for those customers who are new to the concept. Training for the system is less than two days.”
Workpiece sizes up to 800 mm in diameter x 900 mm high (31.4 x 35.4 in.) can be accommodated on each pallet and with weights up to 500 kg (1102.5 lbs.).
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.
