Multi-Spindle Machines – VSC 160 TWIN

The VSC 160 TWIN automatic lathes are high-performance, high-precision vertical multi-spindle machines for mass production, simultaneously machining two workpieces. The VSC 160 TWIN series of automatic lathes combine high-yield production with a small footprint.

EMAG VSC 160 TWIN multi-spindle machines ensure workpiece diameter and length can be corrected for each spindle individually – a requirement for achieving the kind of precision demanded by today’s production environment.

VSC 160 TWIN Automatic Lathes – Twice the Components from the Same Footprint

The TWIN-type automatic lathes are used to simultaneously machine large batches of workpiece pairs with identical operating cycles on a minimum footprint. A single machining area features two work spindles and the overhead slides of these automatic lathes are separate entities. Both slides and their spindles feature separate X- and Z-axis drives and separate measuring systems with linear scales in all axes.

Advantages VSC 160 TWIN

  • Every machine is a manufacturing cell that utilizes the pick-up spindle to load itself
  • Extremely short loading and unloading times
  • Multi-functional production center: turning, drilling, milling, grinding, gear cutting, laser application and other processes
  • The workpiece travels while the tooling systems remain stationary offering ideal chip flow conditions, as the tools are located below the workpiece (also ideal for dry machining)
  • The hydro-static bearings of the work spindle in Z-axis guarantee outstanding component quality and an extended tool life for soft and hard machining
  • All machine assemblies with a bearing on accuracy are fluid-cooled
  • Safe, no-wear, maintenance-free machining area envelope
