    Default Doosan T 3600D - Anyone have experience with this machine?

    Hello! New to forum. We are looking at a Doosan T 3600D. Pretty cool little machine. We currently have a couple Fanuc Robodrills and love them.

    What's nice about the Doosan is price, and the rotary pallet changer. Does anyone have any experience with this machine? (all we do is aluminum, and fairly light machining of small parts (same parts over and over))

    Curious about the long term reliability / maintenance requirements compared to a Robodrill or Speedio.

    The rotary pallet changer is very appealing as it allows full utilization of the spindle. Spindle should be on nearly all day.

    Later next year we plan to add a robot to load/unload. (either on a new robodrill or speedio or to this Doosan). Again the rotary table is very appealing for manual or robot loading/unloading as it allows the spindle to keep working during change overs.

    Any feedback, reviews, or insights into the Doosan would be greatly appreciated.

    I literally yawned watching those demo videos. Like watching paint dry.

    The Brother Quick Table pallet system like on the R450 and R650 has basically been around for 25 years with over 20,000 successful installs. You should get started on that road if you can. The Brother pallet does not lift, no chance for chips and coolant fouling it up, first tool change can be done simultaneously with pallet change and super clean to add rotaries, 4ths and/or 5ths. The cabling goes down through the center of the table and the table does a 180 back and forth so no chance of cables getting tweaked...

    Thanks Brotherfrank! I've been looking at the brother with rotary table as well. From my understanding, the Doosan operates the same way. I'll find out more this week.

    Something to consider....

    Doosan builds a wide variety of machines from this small one to quite large machines. Brother specializes in small machines. I suspect that a specialist builder will make a better performing machine than a machine from a generalist builder.

    I ran one at IMTS 2012. A great machine (granted my bias), and really overbuilt for what you want to cut. I demo'd it using 4340 steel. Excellent parts and support. Built for the long run. Capable of taking a good cut in steel as well.
