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.

Rotational Turning Bypasses Grinding

In order to meet close tolerance specifications, most hardened parts are transferred from lathes to grinding machines for final machining. Rotational turning technology, however, eliminates grinding because of special kinematics between the rotating workpiece and a rotating tool.
