CNC Mill

The Doosan DNM 500

We are proud of our new CNC Mill, giving us more capacity, a greater machining area and an awesome milling power advantage.
Christopher Harley - Managing Director
As part of our drive to improve capacity and efficiency, Brimor Engineering has invested in our latest machine tool, a Doosan DNM 500, Vertical Machining Centre. Combining this mill with an internal restructuring Brimor Engineering has created two CNC Mill and CNC chucking lathe process cells. By utilising the benefits of their machining advantages we are able to reduce machining times and reduce handling and labour costs, passing them on to our customers and increasing our competitive edge.
Cellular Manufacturing is a model for workplace design, and has become an integral part of lean manufacturing systems. Cellular Manufacturing is based upon the principals of Group Technology, which seeks to take full advantage of the similarity between parts, through standardisation and common processing. In Functional Manufacturing similar machines are placed close together (e.g. lathes, millers, drills etc.). Functional layouts are more robust to machine breakdowns, have common jigs and fixtures in the same area and supports high levels of demarcation. In Cellular Manufacturing systems machines are grouped together according to the families of parts produced. The major advantage is that material flow is significantly improved, which reduces the distance travelled by materials, inventory and cumulative lead times. Cellular Manufacturing employs setup reduction and gives the workers the tools to be multiprocess, operating multiple processes, and multifunctional, owning quality improvements, waste reduction, and simple machine maintenance. This allows workers to easily self-balance within the cell while reducing lead times, resulting in the ability for companies to manufacture high quality products at a low cost, on time, and in a flexible way.
The goal of lean manufacturing is the aggressive minimisation of waste, called muda, to achieve maximum efficiency of resources. Cellular manufacturing, sometimes called cellular or cell production, arranges factory floor labor into semi-autonomous and multi-skilled teams, or work cells, who manufacture complete products or complex components. Properly trained and implemented cells are more flexible and responsive than the traditional mass production line, and can manage processes, defects, scheduling, equipment maintenance, and other manufacturing issues more efficiently.

Powerful CNC Mill

The Doosan DNM 500 CNC mill
The DNM features a powerful spindle motor for heavy machining, an excellent 1020mm by 540mm by 510mm machining envelope and fast rapids and tool change.
Doosan DNM 500 VMC's are incredibly versatile, providing high accuracy and excelllent cutting performance whilst at the same time representing real value. The machines have a 15kW 12,000rpm spindle (40 taper), 30-position tool changer and Fanuc i-series control, and a 1,200mm x 540mm table.
