Doosan Machine Tools America’s DMP 500/2SP vertical machining center is equipped with two spindles and two automatic-tool-change (ATC) systems. This model was designed for production job shops and high volume parts manufacturers, the company says.

The DMP 500/2SP can double productivity by machining two parts simultaneously, as well as reducing workloading, unloading and idle times. According to the company, for reduced setup times, the right spindle features a W-axis adjustment of 20 mm (0.8”), allowing any variability in fixture heights between spindles to be compensated for.

12,000 rpm direct-drive spindles with 87 foot-pounds of torque are standard, and 8,000 rpm spindles with 211 foot-pounds of torque are optional. The load capacity (1,763 lbs) and table size (47 × 20.5”) accommodate a variety of workpieces and fixtures, and together with the 20.5” Y-axis stroke, offer a machining space well suited for a range of parts, the company says.

Dual 24-tool capacity magazines are standard, and 30-tool and 40-tool magazines are optional. According to the company, the dual ATCs boast 1.7 second tool-to-tool times, keeping the tools in the cut longer.
