The new VLC 800 CM vertical pick-up turning machine completely processes coupling sleeves with a nominal diameter of 7" - 24". The VLC design allows for a quick, space-saving, simple – and therefore operationally safe and cost-effective – workpiece changeover and transport. The workpieces are conveyed to the pick-up station and clamped directly in the chuck.
The gantry slide with integrated main spindle guides X- and Z-axis travel on the VLC turning centers and machining centers, using a fast-reacting X-axis drive. The Z-axis has an additional counter-balance in connection with a high-powered ballscrew drive to ensure top. travel speeds.
