Dugard becomes UK sales agent for Kenyou

Dugard is now the UK sales partner for the Kenyou series of machine tools, which includes vertical turning, boring and turn-mill models. The Kenyou range will complement Dugard’s existing Kitamura, SMEC, Hanwha and Mylas principals. Stepping beyond the realms of its existing portfolio, the Kenyou range of vertical turn-mill centres includes the VT and VTM series that have table diameters from 1.25 to 3 m with the ability to accommodate workpieces up to 20,000 kg.

This colossal capacity provides end users with a working area of -200 to 1400 mm in the X axis, a Z axis up to 1400 mm and a W axis of 1 m with 10m/min rapid traverse rates. Offered with a FANUC or Siemens control and BT50 tooling interface, the work table has a two-speed gearbox driven by a 30 kW motor for heavy-duty turning operations. Likewise, a range of milling spindles is available from 11 to 22 kW.
