Five axes + turret with up to twelve tools + automation + optional turnover station (on one side).
The VLC 100-P is a two-spindle vertical turning machine with pendulum technology for the vertical turning of workpieces up to 100 mm in diameter. On the VLC 100-P the workspindles are mounted to the left and right of the machine base and carry out the movement in Z. The turret is located at the front of the machine and moves in X. The focus during the creation of the VLC 100-P design has been on reducing the non-productive times in vertical turning. With the VLC 100-P non-productive times for loading and unloading work are almost totally eliminated. The vertical turning machine is perfect for the machining of workpieces with short cycle times, where the deciding factor in judging the efficiency level of the process is the ratio between machining and non-productive times.
