As swift as an SVM 4100

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, has introduced a high-speed vertical machining centre. The SVM 4100 helps manufacturers reduce part processing times, especially when machining aluminium alloys and for the light-duty machining of steel components.

With fast acceleration/deceleration rates (0.72/0.6/0.6 G in the machine’s X, Y and Z axes), tool-to-tool change times (1.3 seconds) and 36 m/min rapids on all three axes, the SVM 4100 can reduce non-cutting times and, as a result, component cycle times. Further exemplifying the machine’s speed and power is its 18.5 kW/12,000 rpm/95.5 Nm directly-connected BT40 spindle, which also features the Big Plus face and taper dual contact system, and an integrated thermal displacement correction system to maintain high accuracies even during long machining runs.

The SVM 4100 is equipped with a 920 x 410 mm work table (600 kg maximum load) that Mills CNC says is the largest machining envelope in its class. Also featured is a 30-tool position ATC, a grease lubrication system that eliminates the need for oil skimmers and reduces lubrication costs by up to 60%, a Doosan Fanuc i Plus control with 15” touchscreen, and Doosan’s conversational and menu-driven Easy Operation Package (EOP) for improved process reliability and functionality.

Doosan’s SVM 4100 is available with a range of options that include: an ATC Shutter that provides greater protection from chip ingress into the ATC area than the standard barrier brush system; TSC (Through-Spindle-Coolant) from 20 to 70 bar; tool and workpiece measurement systems; and different hinged or scraper-type chip conveyor systems.

The new SVM 4100 will make its UK debut at MACH 2022 (4 -8 April, Birmingham NEC) on the stand of Mills CNC (hall 19, stand 100).
