VL 2 – Vertical Pick-Up Turning Machine for Chucked Components up to 100 mm in Diameter

A stable machine structure, dynamic axes and ease of operation - these are the outstanding features of the VL series vertical turning machines. Based on a completely new modular machine concept, VL 2 vertical lathes make it possible to utilize various production technologies for soft and hard machining with integrated automation and a pick-up spindle, all while providing the best value for the investment.

VL 2 Turning Machine for Efficient Machining with Top Precision

Three axes + turret with up to twelve driven tools + automation.

The basic VL 2 machine, a three-axis inverted vertical turning machine, has an eye-catching design. The lathe's basis is the machine body made of MINERALIT® polymer concrete. The working spindle is mounted on the front of the machine bod y on a compound slide, which completes movements in the X- and Z-axes. The turret is located below the working spindle and can hold up to twelve turning or driven tools. In addition, the VL 2 cnc turning machine can be equipped with a Y-axis in the turret.

The lathes are also ideally designed for use in assembly line production, as the VL 2 turning machines can be linked with simple automation components, such as conveyors, flip-over units, and changers.

Workpieces that can be machined with the lathe include flanges and gears. Here, combining the vertical lathes with other modular machines offers an efficient way to implement an assembly line for gears, for example. The cnc turning performed by the VL 2 is complemented by a subsequent process on a VL 4 H for the tooth hobbing and the use of a VLC 100 C for chamfering.

EDNA IOT-READY EX-WORKS: Get started with data-optimized production with VL series

Using data analysis, unnecessary downtimes – due to component wear or, in the worst case, due to the failure of a machine – can be reduced or even avoided entirely. Productivity increases of over 10% are the rule here. To make entering the world of data-optimized production as easy as possible for our customers, all the machines of the VL Series now come standard in an IoT-ready state. This means that data analysis on the machines can be started virtually immediately.
