PUMA 480 series mainly focus its capacity on heavy duty cutting, wide range of cutting coverage along with rapid positioning and fast bi-directional turret-indexing.
Doosan Infracore precision machine tools are internationally known for their durability, rigidity and high accuracy. Only well proven and time tested manufacturing techniques can produce machines of this quality. The PUMA 480 series is a true 45 degree slant bed design. The bed is a one piece casting with both the saddle and tailstock guideways in the same plane to eliminate thermal distortion. The heavily ribbed torque tube design prevents twisting and deformation. Fine grain
Meehanite processed cast iron is used because of its excellent dampening characteristics. This ensures high rigidity with no deformation during heavy cutting. The slant angle allows for easy loading, changing and inspection of tools. All guideways are wide wrap-around rectangular type for un-surpassed long-term rigidity and accuracy. The guideways are widely spaced to ensure stability and fully protected. Each guide-way is induction hardened and precision ground. A fluroplastic resin, Rulon® 142, is bonded to the mating way surfaces, for its wear and friction characteristics and then hand scraped for a perfect fit and center height
