Doosan Hosts Open House at North American Technical Center
The company recently expanded the tech center at its headquarters in New Jersey.
Doosan Machine Tools America hosted an open house to celebrate the company’s recently expanded Technical Center at its Pine Brook, New Jersey, headquarters. The company welcomed customers and members of its North American distributor network.
The company unveiled several machines in the center’s redesigned demonstration area. The HP5100II horizontal machining center was integrated with the company’s compact linear pallet system for the machining of aerospace components and other high-productivity applications. The Puma MX 1600ST mill-turn center was also highlighted for the machining of smaller parts such as those made in the medical sector. Another product shown was the DNM 200 5AX, a five-axis machine that is designed to reduce setup time and part handling for improved component accuracy.
The tech center also contains a dedicated applications engineering, training and spindle lab; parts warehouse; and service departments.
When this aerospace job shop settled on machining tungsten alloys and other heavy metals as its specialty, it had to have a machine tool, cutting tools, workholding and process know-how to succeed.
The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
