VL 2 – Vertical Turning Machines

VL 2 – Vertical Pick-Up Lathe for Chucked Workpieces up to 100 mm in Diameter

A stable machine structure, dynamic axes and ease of operation - these are the outstanding features of the VL series of vertical turning machines. Based on a completely new modular machine concept, VL 2 vertical lathes make it possible to utilize various production technologies for soft and hard machining with integrated automation and a pick-up spindle, all while still providing the best value for the investment.

Vertical Lathes for Efficient Machining with Top Precision

Three axes + turret with up to twelve driven tools + automation.

The basic VL 2 machine, a three-axis inverted vertical turning machine, has an eye-catching design. The lathe's basis is the machine body made of MINERALIT® polymer concrete. The working spindle is mounted on the front of the machine body on a compound slide, which completes movements in the X- and Z-axes. The turret is located below the working spindle and can hold up to twelve turning or driven tools. In addition, the VL 2 turning machine can be equipped with a Y-axis in the turret.

The lathes are also ideally designed for use in assembly line production, as the VL 2 machines can be linked with simple automation components, such as conveyors , flip-over units, and changers.

Workpieces that can be machined with the lathe include flanges and gears. Here, combining the lathes with other modular machines offers an efficient way to implement an assembly line for gears, for example. The turning by the VL 2 is complemented by a subsequent process on a VL 4 H for the tooth hobbing and the use of a VLC 100 C for chamfering.
