Complete production processes with the turning and grinding center VSC DS
The turning and grinding center VSC DS is specifically designed for the low-cost, process capable, precision machining of medium to large component batches. Typical examples of such workpieces are: gearwheels, chain wheels, sliding sleeves, parts for CVTs, link pins, conrods, rocker arms, bearing rings and piston rings.
In each case, workpiece and quality requirements decide which of the available machining processes is the best and the most economical. The advantage for the customer is in the flexibility that allows them to select the best technology for every application: hard turning, scroll-free turning and grinding, all on a single machine.
As on all machines of the VSC series, the pick-up principle ensures that the EMAG REINECKER VSC DS turning and grinding center loads itself. There is consequently no need for cost-intensive, space-devouring gantry loaders or other loading devices that necessitate time consuming resetting work.

- Vertical hard turning and finish-grinding in a single setup, on a single machine
- All workpiece sections that can be turned with the required process reliability are hard finish-turned and only ground (after hard pre-turning) where component quality and process reliability demand
- A better quality component and increased productivity levels, because the workpiece is machined in a single setup, and the hard turning process leaves a small amount of material to be ground away in the subsequent operation
- The grinding wheel subjected to less wear because it does not need to remove as much stock. This reduces the frequency of dressing operations and offers advantages in cycle time
- The grinding operation has to remove only a small amount of material, the grinding wheel specification can be chosen to reflect the desired finish-machining quality
- Back faces are difficult to reach with grinding wheels; however, this problem is solved by employing hard turning operations
