VL 5 DUO: Dual-spindle pick-up turning center with fully integrated automation handling for components up to 250 mm in diameter

With the VL 5 DUO dual-spindle turning center, EMAG is introducing the tried-and-tested DUO concept for a range of parts up to 250 mm and thus precisely for the area that production planners are targeting, i.e. components from the entire powertrain area.

Two separate machining areas ensure maximum flexibility in production

Be it as a “single-machine solution” for OP 10 and OP 20 or as a TWIN-process turning center for OP 10 and OP 10—the most varied production scenarios can be modeled with the VL 5 DUO dual-spindle machine.

The mirrored machining areas each have their own working spindle. With an output of up to 34.1 kW and a torque of up to 593 Nm (at 40% duty cycle), these spindles have adequate power for fast and precise machining. Moreover, each machining area is equipped with a tool turret including twelve tool posts (with either VDI 40 or BMT 55 interface), which can be loaded with driven tools and a Y-axis in addition to the turning tools.

VL 5 TWIN turning center: Built-in quality

The machine base of the VL 5 DUO dual-spindle turning center is cast from MINERALIT®—a polymer concrete with optimal vibration-damping properties. All production units, such as spindle and tool turret, are fastened to this machine base with maximum stability. Furthermore, there are size 45 recirculating roller guide rails as well as a direct distance measuring system in all linear axes. This guarantees the VL 5 DUO’s highest positioning, repeat and long-term accuracy. If required, a measuring probe can also be integrated in the machine, which enables quick component measurement between the time that components are loaded and unloaded.

Perfectly matched automation system

The VL 5 DUO turning center features an integrated automation concept and is equipped with a pick-up automation system. The TrackMotion automation system enhances this integrated automation system and loads the single-part pallets on the parts storage unit, which travel back and forth between the loading positions next to the machining area and the rear part of the machine.
