10 years ago we took a serious look at 5 axis machining and ordered our DMG DMU60 Monoblock 5 axis milling center. We have always bought the finest equipment money can buy and our DMU60 was consistent with that tradition so it made perfect sense to purchase our DMG 85 Monoblock a few years later. DMG is arguably the world’s finest 5 axis machine manufacturer and boasts one of the largest and most modern production facilities in all of Europe. These machines are simply stated incredibly advanced machines capable of astounding accuracy. We’ve spent the last 10 years honing our 5 axis programming and machining skills and we’ve gotten pretty good at it. Check out our gallery for examples of our 5 axis machine work.
Our DMU85 has a 34 inch table big enough to handle a full sized 8 cylinder engine block! You won’t find a machine like this in your average small machine shop but then again, Duonetics is NOT your average machine shop. With such advanced machinery, a world class QMS system, and veteran machinists, we’re anything but average.
Our 5 axis machines both offer 18,000 RPM ceramic bearing spindles, Renishaw or Heidenhein on-machine probing systems, Blum lasers for tool life management, and they even have self calibration options that keep them in perfect alignment for unparalleled accuracy and repeatability. Few shops offer this level of sophistication, even fewer can do it consistently.
Our Open Mind Hypermill advanced CAD/CAM programming software is designed specifically for complex 5 axis work including spiral inducers, turbo expander wheels, turbine wheels and blades, and other challenging geometries. Hypermill provides an array of highly diversified programming solutions saving us time and allowing us to provide much higher quality and shorter lead times. The result is a win-win for our customers and a level of confidence that we can provide exactly what is needed in this challenging business environment…quality, delivery, and economy.
