The heavy-duty foundation of the VM 9 Vertical Turning Center is made of a MINERALIT® polymer concrete column. The particularly good damping properties of Mineralit®, combined with the compound slide with the X- and Z-axes ensure excellent machining quality, high speed processes and short idle times. The main spindle provides the necessary power with a 83 kW rating and a torque of 990 Nm.
Depending on the desired interface (BMT or VDI), the tool turret features eight or twelve tool positions, which can also be equipped with driven tools to carry out drilling operations, for example. The integrated probe ensures process reliability and guarantees consistently high workpiece quality (first part = OK part).
