VTC 100 Customized Vertical Shaft Machining

The strength of the VTC 100 Vertical Turning Machine lies in the production of large quantities of shafts with diameters up to 400 mm. Full integration into the EMAG machine concept including automatic loading and unloading of the workpieces offers a manufacturing system that is characterized by short travel distances and fast loading of via the turret. This is complemented by a powerful main spindle (34 kW, 144 Nm, 6000 rpm). 

4-Axis Vertical Turning Machine

The overhead main spindle is located in the center of its upper section with a tailstock below. The shaft components are clamped between the work spindle and tailstock and supported by a steady. The machining operations are carried out by two turrets featuring 11 tool stations each and one additional  station to accommodate the workpiece gripper that conveys the workpiece into and out of the vertical turning machine. The remaining tooling stations can be equipped with turning or driven tools.

To the left and right of the machining area are closed-looped conveyor belts that store raw-parts and finish-machined components.

Advantages VTC 100

  • Shorter cycle times through 4-axis machining
  • Less investment required in sensors, as the machine axes are direct driven and the machine’s control system is of the latest design
  • Short setting and resetting times owing to great machine accessibility and operator friendliness
  • Less operator intervention (tailstock and steady are CN-controlled, the turrets can be accessed directly)
  • The vertical construction of the machine and the resulting free chip flow prevent the creation of  chip nests
  • Less expense for automation and peripherals
  • Raw-part and finished component storage form an integral part of the machine
  • Reduced idle times through cycle time-concurrent loading and unloading
  • The machine can be used as a stand-alone or in a production line
  • The compact, vertical construction of the machine features a small footprint
