Last September we reported Denholm’s investment in a new Doosan Puma 2600LY lathe
Following delivery to Denholm’s Liverpool site shortly after Christmas, the lathe was installed and commissioned in January 2012 and now plays an important role in Denholm’s daily work.
Engineer Joe Paton has been with Denholm’s for 10 years and he was the first to get his hands on the new lathe.
After only a month working with the new kit, he is impressed:
“I have just completed the set up on the lathe to produce a
new component. On the machine that the Puma 2600 replaced,
the set-up would have taken me around 2-3 hours.
On the Puma 2600 it took 40 minutes!”

The Puma 2600LY is extremely flexible. The availability of ‘Y-axis’ machining allows components to be produced more speedily and with an even higher quality finish than was previously possible.
