Railway Wheel Manufacture on High-Performance Vertical Turning Machines

The dimensions of the VLC 1200 are ideal for the weight of such workpieces that, on its spindle nose and including the clamping device, are three metric tons. With the VLC platform, EMAG caters to chuck diameter sizes 500 / 630 / 800 and 1200 mm. The turning machines are used to process parts like planet carriers, railway wheels, wheel hubs, ring gears, or rims. The concept extends from a two-axis to a five-axis pick-up machine. Nearly all machining technologies can be applied in VLC platform including turning, drilling, milling, grinding, and gear cutting.
