The Dugard range of cost-effective vertical machining centres has evolved with the company working closely alongside its long-standing Taiwanese partners to instigate enhancements across the series. The Dugard 550, 760, 1000 and 1350 now have a smaller footprint (less than 2 x 2 m), larger work envelope (extended Y axis), faster rapid travels (up to 36 m/min) and a wider choice of CNC (Fanuc, Siemens, Mitsubishi) – all at a more cost-effective price point than the previous models.
Dugard has installed thousands of three-axis VMCs down the years and, by providing its machine-tool partners with in-depth customer feedback and analysis from UK and European customers, the toils of this extensive R&D exercise are now bearing fruit. The final specifications were agreed upon at the recent EMO show in Hanover. Dugard’s new 550, 760, 1000 and 1350 VMCs are now available in the UK from stock.
