DNM 4000 VMC Machines Tough Materials

Originally titled 'VMC Machines Tough Materials'

Doosan Machine Tools’s DNM 4000 compact VMC features a 12,000-rpm, 25-hp 40-taper spindle with 86 foot-pounds of torque and a Big-Plus dual-contact interface. 

Doosan Machine Tools’s DNM 4000 compact vertical machining center was designed for lean cell applications where space is tight, but productivity and cutting performance are essential. It’s said to be able to take more aggressive cuts than similarly sized 30 taper drill-tap machines and can be used for machining small parts in tough-to-machine materials for a range of industries including medical, aerospace, automotive, job shops, firearms and die and mold.

It features a 12,000-rpm, 25-hp 40-taper spindle with 86 foot-pounds of torque and a Big-Plus dual-contact interface. The VCM has a footprint of only 65”W × 112”L × 108”H and travels of 20.5” in X, 15.7” in Y and 18.9” in Z. The two-door design allows for operator access. The coolant system is located in the rear of the machine so the DNM can be placed inches from the neighboring machines.
