DMU 50 eco

October 01, 2010

DMG/Mori Seiki USA's DMU 50 eco CNC 5-axis control machining center is designed to be the ideal 5-axis machine tool for low-cost, high-quality parts machining with a shortened delivery time. This next-generation standard machine reduces cost by also reducing fixturing and setup time while improving accuracy, according to the company. Offering excellent cost performance, the DMU 50 eco is especially advantageous for users who are introducing 5-axis machining to their manufacturing process for the first time.

Equipped with the same configuration as the DMG DMU 50, the DMU 50 eco has all basic functions necessary for indexing 5-axis machining. The DMU 50 eco uses an NC swivel rotary table with digital drives as standard. The NC swivel rotary table consists of the B-axis with the tilt angle from -5 degrees to +110 degrees and the C-axis that can rotate 360 degrees. The B-axis, which can tilt another 20°From vertical position, allows back side milling and flexible indexing 5-axis machining by combining with the C-axis.

Additional standard features include a maximum rotational speed of 8,000 rpm, 16 tool storage capacity and manual pulse handle. The machine also achieves both space saving and excellent operability by using a cantilevered table and wide-opening front doors, offering excellent accessibility to the table, thereby maximizing productivity per unit area.

Furthermore, the DMU 50 eco is an even greater value because it is now covered by DMG/Mori Seiki USA's comprehensive customer service plan, including a 24-or-free guarantee for replacement parts and 2-year warranty.

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • machining center

    machining center

    CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.

  • numerical control ( NC)

    numerical control ( NC)

    Any controlled equipment that allows an operator to program its movement by entering a series of coded numbers and symbols. See CNC, computer numerical control; DNC, direct numerical control.
