Doosan Machine Tools America’s Puma TW 2600/M-GL is a a high-performance, 10” class, two spindle turning center with an integrated gantry loader. The turning center is the result of input from the automotive industry for a gantry loaded turning center that reduces cycle-time for high volume production runs. The machine is an upgrade of the previous model with features that give it a larger working range in addition to upgrades in speed and ease-of-use, the company says.

Idle time has been minimized by reducing the gantry loader handling time during both the loading and unloading cycle. The Y-axis rapid traverse rate is 34-percent faster than the previous model and the gantry loader cycle time is 28-percent shorter. The built-in loader guidance software also provides gantry loader operation and machine maintenance.

The turning center comes standard with a high-power spindle which generates a maximum 19-kW (25-hp) and 404-Nm (298 foot-pounds) of torque. The spindle length of 513 mm (20”) is 6-percent shorter than the previous model to reduce vibration and noise. According to the company, the bearing size of 110 mm (4”) is 10-percent bigger than the previous model to enhance spindle rigidity and improve heavy duty machining capability.
