One of QPE's aerospace customers was looking for a more cost-effective solution for machining their components than 5-axis CNC. To address their needs and expand our already impressive machining capability and capacity QPE has taken delivery of a Doosan DNM 6700 CNC Machining Centre. The new machine takes its place alongside more than 20 existing CNC machining centres, lathes and electrical discharge machines (EDM) at our factory in Gillman, South Australia.
The DNM 6700 is a 4-axis vertical machine with a large working envelope and a powerful direct drive spindle operating at up to 12,000 RPM. It allows QPE to machine complex components in a single setup with extreme precision. The machine's high torque also enables the use of a range of materials including stainless steel, aluminium, titanium and plastics.
We'll be announcing more exciting additions to our plant soon.
