    Default would you pick Doosan and why?

    Hello,

    Probably a bias posting in the Doosan section but ........

    I am looking at a new VMC and am torn between the Haas VF4-SS or the Doosan DNM 6700.

    I was wondering what you guys thought?
    Having learnt on a Haas, I am very familiar with the Haas controller, but I am happy to learn the Fanuc controller if needed, and we never really do on matchine programming, it's all via CAM

    First off, I work for Doosan, so I am a bit biased.

    With that said, there are advantages. I never knock the other guys. They're good tools and have their place. I prefer Doosan and I'll tell you why. The decision, ultimately, is yours.

    With Doosan, we own our foundry. We pour our own castings. The ballscrews and linear guides are all of very high quality. The care in construction is evident.
    Plus, there is the support. With Doosan, training is free for life. All you have to do is get here. Phone support, is free for life. We stock parts going back to Daewoo #1.

    The Fanuc 0i we use has 95% of Fanuc options as standard. Fanuc has 24/7 support.

    The machine is purpose built with a 30+ year lifespan. So is the Fanuc CNC.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Not with a Fanuc control, having to run from compact flash card because the machine has 400kb of internal memory is terrible in 2018.

    See me other post today on this topic..I am sitting here getting nothing done as I have no way to edit my programs on the flash card without starting over from what I originally posted with cam.

    I would buy another Doosan in a heart beat. You can upgrade your memory if you need space just like on haas, just ask your salesman.

    The ungraded memory is tiny too, we have the "upgraded memory"

    There is a data server option that can run very large programs internally. Ask your dealer.
