Vertical 4-axis shaft machining
The strength of the VT Series of vertical turning machines is the 4-axis machining capability allowing it to produce a large quantity of shafts up to 400 mm (VT 2-4) or 630 mm (VT 4-4) in length. Since the machine concept fully integrates loading and unloading automation, a manufacturing system with very short transport distances can be created. The machine is loaded and unloaded by two turrets to ensure fast processing.
The machine also has a powerful main spindle (40% duty cycle – 34 kW, 144 Nm, 6,000 rpm). For machining there are two turrets with eleven tool positions which can be equipped with either turning or driven tools. There are also covered conveyor belts on both sides of the machining area where raw and finished parts are stored.
