DN Solutions (formerly Doosan Machine Tools) will introduce the SVM 5100L, the latest member of its family of vertical machining centers, at IMTS 2022 on September 12-17. The new machine is the big brother of the SVM 4100 and fits into the company’s lineup between the DEM and the DNM series. The SVM 5100L incorporates a traditional C-frame design structure that is optimized to provide a solid platform for fast, light duty machining operations.
“The SVM 5100L is another example of DN Solutions filling every niche our customers work in,” said Jim Shiner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at DN Solutions America. “If you need a vertical machining center with speed to cut lighter materials, you can now choose between different sizes of SVM models. For more robust materials, the DNM line is available.”
Like its smaller sibling, the SVM 5100L’s performance has been optimized to provide shorter cycle times by reducing the acceleration/deceleration times of the XYZ axes and spindle, thereby minimizing non-cutting time. The 25 hp (18.5 kW) motor on the SVM 5100L turns the spindle at a speed of 12,000 r/min which generates 70.5 ft-lbs (95.5 kW) of torque. The X- axis travel is 50” (1,270mm), Y and Z-axis travel is 20.1” (510mm). The maximum table capacity is 1,763.7 lbs (800kg) and the rapid feedrate is 1,417 ipm (36 m/min).
Despite having a great price, the SVM 5100L is not a “stripped down to cut costs” model. This machine is packed with features, including a CAT 40 BIG-PLUS spindle system, through spindle coolant, a double-arm ATC with 30 tools and a FANUC 0i-Plus control with iHMi touch screen interface.

Related Glossary Terms
Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
