As part of its 30th anniversary celebration, Doosan Infracore (West Caldwell, New Jersey) is offering savings on key turning centers and VMCs, plus a startup gift package containing measuring instruments and other operator-friendly items. The offer remains in effect through the end of the year.
In 1980, Doosan Infracore (originally Daewoo Heavy Industries) opened its doors in North America for the distribution, sales and service of Puma turning centers, which the company says are characterized by high horsepower and rigidity. In 1981, the company introduced the DSN20, a two-axis NC lathe with Fanuc 6T control, a 20-hp, 2,000-rpm spindle drive, quick-change aloris tool posts and 400-ipm rapids.
Much has changed in the three decades since then. In 2005, the company rebranded itself from Daewoo to Doosan Infracore. It also began to expand its offering from a single NC lathe to what now amounts to more than 140 vertical and horizontal turning and turn/mill centers, 70 VMCs and HMCs and a line of boring mills. Additionally, the company’s sales/service network now numbers more than 50 distributors throughout North, Central and South America.
