Doosan Machine Tools is one of the world’s largest and most reliable CNC machine tool builders, currently manufacturing over 12,000 machines a year. Doosan CNCs are the perfect middle point machines: cheaper and more accessible than a high end Japanese model, but sturdier and more powerful than low end builds. Covering everything from turning centers, to Vertical Machining Centers (VMC) and Horizontal Machining Center (HMC), and even up to 5-axis and multitasking machines, it’s hard to go wrong with a Doosan for an operation of any size.
Their sturdiness means that even a used Doosan can run without a high risk of breaking down, and they are popular enough that you’ll have no trouble finding someone to help you if you do have mechanical difficulties. Doosan also offers a 24/7 technical support hotline, as well as a part delivery service. Doosan CNC machines also run on a modified version of the popular FANUC control system, meaning veterans will feel right at home coding them. If you’re trying to find a durable machine that can cut more than aluminum, but still won’t break the bank, a used Doosan is worth a look.
