Pine Brook, New Jersey – Doosan Machine Tools’ Puma SMX multi-tasking turning centers are now available with a lower turret for enhanced versatility and productivity. The turret will be available on both the 10" chuck (Puma SMX2600ST) and 12" chuck (Puma SMX3100ST) models.

Puma SMX series is a twin-spindle, multi-tasking turning center built for completing complex parts in a single setup. Both turning spindles feature 0.0001° resolution on the C-axis for high precision contouring, and the 12,000rpm dedicated milling spindle features 0.0001° resolution contouring B-axis as well. With a Y-axis stroke of 11.8" (300mm) and an orthogonal X/Y structure, part accuracy and machine accessibility are both improved.

The addition of a lower turret allows operators to be even more productive on a single CNC machine. A 12-station static tool turret is standard on SMX ST models, and a 5,000rpm milling turret is available as an option. The turret is also designed to accommodate steady rests, follow rests, tailstock centers, and two-jaw vises.
