Press release date: March 4, 2014

Company Installs New Large-Capacity Doosan VTS 1620M Vertical Turning Lathe

Exton, PA – DFT Inc., an industry leader in the manufacturing of valves for more than 70 years, is now able to machine and manufacture valves even larger than before, thanks to the new Doosan Puma VTS 1620M recently installed in the company's shop.

DFT can machine bigger and more precise valve orders and cut ultra-large and ultra-heavy duty valves with higher reliability rates using the VTS 1620M, one of the biggest VTLs available. The machine has a 78.7-inch maximum turning diameter and a 61.3-inch maximum turning height capacity, and it features a large vertical turning center with a RAM head spindle.

DFT will continue to guarantee perfect milling, drilling, and tapping on the vertical turning center as it benefits from the VTS 1620M's servo-driven C-axis control. Capable of moving vertically in 7.9-inch increments, the VTS 1620M's traveling crossbeam is hydraulically clamped to the vertical rails to keep the ram in the optimum position for machining. It all adds up to higher productivity, increased efficiency, reduced costs, and shorter turnarounds.

Since 1943, DFT has manufactured world-class, problem-solving in-line, axial flow, nozzle-style silent check valves and severe service control valves. Whether it's an in-stock or custom-engineered special order, the DFT sales and engineering staff responds quickly to customer demands.

DFT Inc. manufactures severe service control valves and in-line check valves in its Exton, Pennsylvania, facility. DFT takes pride in working closely with its end users to solve their problems. The results are valves that provide superior performance, long service life, and low maintenance costs.
