The Puma SMX Series is Doosan’s third generation mill-turn multi-tasking machine, integrating the capabilities of a vertical machining center and horizontal turning center into one platform. The Puma SMX Series distinguishes itself with a more rigid 90⁰ vertical axis and forward positioned automatic tool changer, for improved milling capabilities as well as enhanced operator ergonomics.
The Puma SMX Series will initially be made available in two sizes, the Puma SMX2600, with a 10” chuck and 78 mm bar capacity, and the Puma SMX3100, featuring a larger 12” chuck with 102 mm of bar capacity. Both Puma SMX models have the capacity to machine parts up to 1525 mm in length and 660 mm in diameter. The X1-axis travel is 630 mm, Z1-axis travel is 1585 mm and the Y-axis is 230 mm. Rapid Traverse, X1, Z1 & Y: 50/50/36 m/min.
The powerful multi-tasking functions decrease the total processing time and number of machining operations by using a single setup. This provides excellent high-speed performance for component manufacturing processes that require accurate and complex machining capabilities for turning, milling and secondary operations using the SMX sub-spindle, which is optional.
The Puma SMX Series provides excellent performance for high precision machining by use of a high-rigidity machine construction using finite element analysis (FEA) in structural design and minimizing thermal deformation via oil cooler and an accuracy control feature based on multiple thermal compensation functions. The Y-axis machining area has been maximized through orthogonal design. Ergonomic design enhances operator convenience, and efficient maintenance provides an optimal solution that meets customer needs.
High accuracy control functions maintain excellent precision during long-term machining processes by minimising the thermal deformation of the spindle and the feed axis, and by maximizing the precision through the 0.0001° B-axis and C-axis. Oil cooler minimizes thermal deformation of the spindle and feed axis and high-rigidity and high precision are achieved through the use of roller-type linear motion guides on all carriages.
Easy and convenient operation
Ergonomic design features easy access for maintenance as well as optimum operator convenience by including customized functions — including front located tool magazine (80 tools max), side-to-side movable, 85° swiveling Fanuc 31i control panel with adjustable height and convenient ATC operation panel (tool to tool change: 1.8 sec).
