Pine Brook, NJ – Doosan Machine Tools hosted a record number of attendees from 50 countries at the 2019 edition of the Doosan International Machine Tool Fair (DIMF) held recently in Changwon, South Korea. A total of 80 machines were on display, including 38 new or upgraded models.
According to Jim Shiner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Doosan Machine Tools America, the event was unique in that it showcased the complete range of Doosan products. “Visitors got to see not only a large number of our machine tools, but a variety of progressive offerings that can help them build complete manufacturing systems,” he said. “These included robotics, automation technologies, pallet systems, tower RPS systems, controls, software and much more.”
“These in-depth demonstrations made it readily apparent that Doosan can enhance quality and production for applications that range from the smallest bearings to massive aerospace structures,” he concluded.
The machine tools on display drew crowds eager to see the latest Doosan equipment. “The PUMA SMX5100 multifunction mill-turn machine generated a lot of buzz, as the market has been anticipating it for quite a while,” said Doosan’s Director of Sales Andy McNamara. “But I would have to say the showstopper was the HFP 1540, our new 30,000 r/min five-axis horizontal profiler for aluminum aerospace structures. It impressed everyone who saw it with its muscle, speed and size.”
