Mills CNC introduces a new, compact simultaneous 5-axis machining centre

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of DN Solutions (formerly Doosan) and Zayer machine tools into the UK and Ireland, has recently introduced a new simultaneous 5-axis machining centre into the market.

The DN Solutions’ DVF 4000 is the latest addition to the company’s best-selling DVF-series of 5-axis machining centres and, with its compact size and impressive technical specification will, no doubt, become an instant hit with component manufacturers looking to improve their productivity and process efficiencies.

The DVF 4000 is powerful, fast, flexible and reliable. It is the ideal solution for the efficient processing of parts that require multiple machining operations and reduces the number of set-ups required to machine such parts to completion.

The machine is supplied with a 12,000rpm (BT 40) directly-coupled spindle (as standard), powered by an 18.5kW motor that generates 118N-m of torque.

The Fanuc 31i-Plus control enables the DVF 4000 to be used in full simultaneous 5-axis machining mode with advanced contouring capabilities.

The DVF 4000 is equipped with a 400mm diameter, built-in rotary tilting table with a zero-backlash roller gear cam design that delivers improved speed and reliability.

Productivity and process efficiencies are further realised with  the machine’s 60-tool, servo-driven automatic tool changer and an integrated thermal compensation system, comprising six sensors strategically located within the machine, that combat thermal drift issues in real time.

Roller LM guideways deliver improved speed and rigidity, and linear scales on the machine’s X-, Y-, and Z-axes and rotary scales on its B- and C-axes, ensure accurate positioning and repeatability.

Tony Dale, Mills CNC’s CEO, said: "A fantastic addition to what is already a market-leading 5-axis machine tool range.

“The compact DVF 4000, available at a competitive price, provides component manufacturers with a highly-functional 5-axis machine tool solution that will help transform their machine shops’ productivity, performance and profitability.”
