High-precision, five-axis machining of components up to 2300 mm long may be carried out productively on the new DMF 200|8 travelling-column machining centre from DMG Mori. Offering travels of 2000 x 800 x 850 mm, the DMF 200|8 offers users in the aerospace and mould-making industries, for example, scope to machine long components up to the maximum table load of 2000 kg. Rapid traverse in the linear axes is 50 m/min as standard, but with an optional linear drive in the X axis, the machine reaches 80 m/min. Holistic cooling throughout the machine delivers long-term accuracy and tight tolerances.
The B-axis milling head with 6000 Nm maximum clamping torque offers a swivel range of ±120° for flexible five-axis machining. A 15,000 rpm speedMASTER spindle is standard, while an extensive choice of other modular spindles is available, including a 200 Nm high-torque variant and a 20,000 rpm high-speed version. All come with a 36-month warranty, regardless of running hours.
DMG Mori’s new machine is equipped with a Siemens control and the latest version of the company’s proprietary APP-based user interface, CELOS. So users are well equipped for digitalised production and automation, for example through the attachment of the manufacturer’s PH Cell automatic pallet changer.
The DMF 200|8 features a novel tool change mechanism, which takes place behind the table for fast, safe, collision-free cutter exchange, so the entire clamping surface is available for use. Compared with the predecessor model, the working volume is over 50% larger, creating new possibilities for machining complex components. The ability to employ 400 mm long tools is said to be a unique selling point in this machine class.
