5-Axis Machining Center for Complex Parts

The X, Y and Z axes on the 200/5AX Linear are driven by high-precision linear motors for high accel/decel feed rates with little to no backlash. The platten size is 7.9 in diameter with a capacity load of 33.1 lb. Travels are X-axis, 7.9 in, Y-axis, 13.4 in and Z-axis, 11.8 in. Rapid traverse rates on all axes are 1,968.5 ipm, with a cutting feedrate of 787 ipm.
The FM 200/5AX Linear from Doosan performs simultaneous 5-axis contouring on medical devices, automotive turbo chargers and other precision parts.
