  • A Doosan Machine Tools NHP-6300, 4-axis HMC equipped with 5ME® Cryogenics headed
    to Milling Precision Tool Corp. to machine titanium aerospace components
    .

    SEPTEMBER 2018 – 5ME and strategic partner Doosan Machine Tools started IMTS 2018 in a
    big way – with the sale of a Doosan Horizontal Machining Center (HMC) equipped with 5ME
    Cryogenics sold by Doosan distributor Machine Tool Specialties. The Doosan NHP-6300, 4-axis
    HMC will process titanium 6Al4V components in Milling Precision Tool Corp’s Wichita, KS
    facility. Machining with the 5ME Cryogenics equipped HMC increased productivity by 30 percent
    compared to traditional coolant machining. “This is what IMTS is all about – coming together to
    develop and deliver the best manufacturing technology,” said Bill Horwarth, President, 5ME.
    “Our partnerships make the evolution to cryogenic machining possible, from machine tool, to our
    patented internal liquid nitrogen (LN2) machining technology, to cryogenic tooling. We have a
    total cryogenic solution ready for the shop floor. This is the first 5ME Cryogenics enabled
    machine tool sold into the ‘Aerospace Capital’ of Wichita, Kansas, and we see big opportunities
    for cryogenic machining in that region.”


    The Doosan NHP-6300 HMC has X-Y-Z travel of 41.3’ X 35.4’ x 39.4”, a 24.8” pallet and
    a feed rate of 1,986 IPM. The CAT50 BigPlus spindle is 60 hp, 10,000 RPM with 443 ft-lb
    torque. “Our machine tools are built for massive metal removal, with the increased productivity
    from 5ME Cryogenics, our machines are set for maximized profitability,” said Jim Shiner,
    Director of Marketing and Sales for Doosan Machine Tool. “The 5ME Cryogenics option really
    optimizes the machining performance of hard-to-machine materials, like titanium.”


    Milling Precision Tool Corp also saw an increase in part quality with a much smaller
    environmental footprint. “We’re working to differentiate ourselves and better support the supply
    chain in Wichita, KS”,” said Mike Craig, Co-owner Milling Precision Tool. “We’re excited to be
    the first business in the Wichita market with cryogenic capability.”

    5ME Cryogenics has revolutionized machining, using through-spindle, through-tool liquid
    nitrogen (LN2) delivery to mitigate heat produced during cutting. Cryogenics offers many
    benefits over conventional coolants in efficiency and environmental friendliness. Useful for
    difficult-to-machine materials, cryogenic machining boasts an incredible -400° cooling
    advantage, which allows for increased material removal rates (MRR) and tool life. 5ME
    Cryogenic Machining Technology is offered as a new machine option or can also be retrofitted
    to almost any machine tool.
