The VTM-200 three-axis vertical turning center combines the benefits of a vertical lathe with those of a machining center. The 50 taper 36-tool magazine enables this machine to offer both turning and milling operations on a single platform. It is the ideal machine for efficient low volume parts production, including valve bodies and work that requires heavy milling. The box way construction and wide, angular slideways on each axis provide high rigidity for accurate machining. A vertical axis counterbalance assures smooth, stable feed at all speeds. The headstock is fixed to the base, minimizing the influence of thermal changes and vibration on cutting accuracy. In addition, the VTM-200 is available with a wide range of standard accessories, including a spindle orientation function.
