Minimal non-productive time guaranteed—VMC 450-4 turning/milling center
This technology forms the basis for an efficient production process for every component. The various turning, drilling, milling, and grinding processes proceed in rapid alternation in a single machining area and a single clamping operation—allowing drastically shorter process chains for every component.
The VMC 450-4 is a classic turning machine with an exceptionally powerful main spindle with direct drive—a fundamental prerequisite for precise and productive heavy machining. The powerful turning/milling spindle is also directly driven.
All told, this compact and powerful machine concept offers users several advantages: Tooling work is reduced, while component quality improves thanks to the single clamping operation. The non-productive time of the machines is optimized as well. This all adds up to top-level productivity: Production costs for planet carriers, clutch parts, brake components, etc. are reduced.
High-quality machine components
Users also benefit from the high-quality components of the modular system: The low-vibration MINERALIT® machine base and the high-quality linear guides ensure high surface quality on the workpiece. At the same time, optional measuring systems come together to provide seamless quality management.
