Doosan Machine Tools America’s Puma 1000/M large-sized big-bore heavy-duty turning center was developed for industries like oil and aviation that have the need to machine large diameter parts. It incorporates a highly-rigid live tool turret to machine large rings, flanges, shafts, and pipes, the company says.

The turning center provides a working area with a machining diameter of 1,000 mm (39 inches) and a machining length of 2040 mm (80 inches). According to the company, the spindle through-hole of up to 560 mm (22 inches) enables the processing of long pipes and rods required for offshore plants and oil exploration.

It’s equipped with a two-stage gearbox featuring a high-output spindle with a maximum output of 75 kW (100 hp) and a 250-mm (10-inch) thick turret. The adoption of a highly reliable servo motor for the turret reduces vibration during turning and milling, maximizing stability during heavy-duty cutting, the company says.

Front and rear chucks stabilize long workpieces for precision while a special creeping feature feeds the tailstock center into the workpiece smoothly. The turning center also incorporates covers at the rear to keep the work area clear of coolant and chips.
