I've beenn shopping around for a new CNC lathe, 45/50mm (ish) machine, something with driven tools/milling capacity. Looked at the usual suspects, Doosan Lynx/Puma, Kia SKT range and CMZ, amongst others. However a service engineer fellow I know has pointed me in the direction of DMC machines.
His version of events is that other Korean machine tool companies, Kia, Hyundai, Doosan sub-contract their smaller lathe manufacture to DMC. I don't know whether this is true, but the similarity between a number of the Korean slant bed machines is pretty remarkable, so I guess it is quite possible.
I've spoken to the UK importers and there is a significant price advantage of a DMC over, say, an equivalent Kia, but I'm just a bit twitchy in case I end up buying a pup. Anyone out there able to shed any more light on DMC and its business, and further and owners/users able to share their experiences of these machines.
tHE machine I'm interested in is the DMC 6TM or 8TM
