The Incredible Friendship of Machine Tools and Instagram

A couple years back, we noticed something: Machinists LOVE Instagram.The social platform is known for its curated feeds and gorgeous photography, but it’s also ideal for sharing glimpses of the machine shop life.

When we first launched the @doosanmta Instagram account, we had one simple goal: Publish things that people would actually enjoy coming across. 10,000 followers later, Instagram is officially one of our favorite places to watch end-users Machine Greatness.

If this is the first you’re hearing of @doosanmta, below is what you can expect. We encourage you to follow if you’re interested in machine tools. It’s one of the best follows in the industry.

1. The Specs We Have
We’ve faithfully posted a Spec of the Week for well over a year. Thanks to the comprehensive line of Doosan Machine Tools, we’ll never run out of impressive specs to share. And whatever the number, it’s always a reason to make Doosan your next machine tool purchase.

PUMA V400. Spec of the week: 30.

NHP 6300. Spec of the week: 3,306 lbs.

NHM 6300. Spec of the week: 791.

DNM 350/5AX. Spec of the week: 0.0002".

2. The Way We Work
We love sharing behind-the-scenes looks at our machines and the processes that make them a wise choice for your shop.

Oh hi there, PUMA SMX ST.

Quit messing with multiple setups.

The heart of the machine.

Massive DCM grinding.

3. The Things You Make

Now we’re getting to the good stuff. One of the main reasons we launched the account in the first place was to celebrate the things end-users make with Doosan machines.

@zerofeud: Making goodies while loving life!

@cnc_zerspaner: DOOSAN NHP 6300 - Multipaletten System. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

@fastecracing: A set of yokes and super bike front spindle heading off to @debolexengineering for a customer build they are working on.

@cnctobi: Finish cut on some parts out of 16MnCr5.

@electromechanica_inc and @spiche1: Complicated little aluminum part @spiche1 is making on the #doosanlynx today. He had every position on the turret maxed out for this one. #livetooling and #subspindle are showing their worth as parts come out finished and ready for anodize with no additional handling. Love this #machine!

@lee_cnc_machinist.uk: Another shot of the way I’m holding it etc 👍

4. The Pride You Have
This is our favorite thing to see. To all the humans that use our machines, the ones who share pictures of their a new Doosan like it’s Christmas morning, the ones who take selfies with them: You are the reason we get up every day and do what we do.

5. And, Of Course, Dogs

It wouldn’t be Instagram without them.

Just ask Blue.

Dogs love cats.
