Dugard to present complete portfolio at MACH 2024

At the forthcoming MACH exhibition, Dugard Machine Tools will be showcasing a raft of new machines – many of which will be receiving their MACH exhibition debuts. From the 15th to the 19th of April on Stand 370 in Hall 20, Dugard will be introducing everything from fast precise sliding head turning centres to industry-leading 5-axis machining centres on its stand.

With one of the most diverse portfolios of machine tools in the UK, Dugard will be introducing the Kitamura Mytrunnion 4G 5-axis powerhouse alongside three Hanwha sliding head turning centres. Appearing beside these machines will be a SMEC 2500BSY turning centre and the newly introduced Mylas brand with the DT52 twin spindle twin turret multi-tasking turning centre. 

To showcase the breadth of its machine tool offering, the Brighton-based machine tool specialist will give the Hanwha brand of sliding head turning centres prominence with the XD10, XD20 III and the XDI 32 all set to take centre stage at MACH. The visibility of the Hanwha brand is credited to the success of the machines in the UK since Dugard introduced them to the UK at MACH 2022.

For manufacturers looking for an even larger and more powerful turning centre, Dugard will be demonstrating one of its most popular machine tools – the SMEC SL2500BSY turning centre. Built upon the foundation of a single-piece Meehanite casting that is heavily ribbed with a torque tube design; box slideways are used throughout the SMEC range, resulting in outstanding vibration dampening and thermal displacement characteristics. This combination permits powerful heavy-duty cutting that ultimately enhances surface finishes, tool life, component quality and productivity.

The extremely robust machine with sub-spindle hosts an 8-inch chuck with a 650mm swing over bed capacity that allows a maximum machining diameter of 395mm and a maximum turning length of 450mm. This spacious work envelope ensures the robust workhorse caters for the diverse demands of the industry. The SMEC SL2500BSY has a bar capacity of 68mm and a powerful 18.5kW spindle motor that combines to enable heavy-duty manually loaded or automatically barfeed machining of relatively large diameter parts. Both the SMEC and the Hanwha ranges are available in a variety of configurations and capacity sizes to meet the complete needs of the marketplace.

Complementing the SMEC will be the new Mylas DT52 machine. Like all other machines in the Dugard stable, the Mylas brand has been introduced into the Dugard family for its stability, precision, innovation and productivity. Receiving its show debut, the Mylas DT52 at MACH will have a 12-station turret with 6,000rpm spindle speed, a powerful 15kW main spindle with a 79mm through bore and an 8-station sub-spindle tooling turret. With a maximum bar turning capacity of 51mm and a maximum turning length of 350mm, the Mylas DT52 has a host of standard accessories such as part catcher and conveyor, auto lubrication, through coolant and more that will present a competitively priced one-hit production centre for everything from the simple to the most complex of parts. 

For prismatic machining, Dugard will present the powerful and precise Kitamura Mytrunnion 4G 5-axis machining centre. The Mytrunnion 4G incorporates a 400mm diameter rotary table and travel of 610 by 610 by 500mm in the X, Y and Z-axis with A axis tilt of -120 to +30 degrees and 360-degree C-axis. Kitamura is renowned for its speed and precision and the Mytrunnion 4G is no exception. With 50m/min rapids, 18,000deg/min A and C-axis and the most powerful Arumatik CNC system in its class, we recommend you visit Stand 370 in Hall 20 at MACH 2024 and talk to the experts from Dugard to see how your machine shop productivity can be improved.
