Vertical Turning Machine

VL 5i is a good fit for small and medium manufacturing companies. It can be used for small and large batch production, and complete-machines workpieces of up to 250 mm in EMAG VL 5idiameter in a single setup. Flanges, gears, gear shafts and steering pinions can be machined with as much efficiency and to the same quality as brake disks or cams. The machine features a 28 kW workspindle with a top torque of 300 N*m, plus a turret that accommodates turning as well as driven tools and has an indexing time of 2.2 seconds. Drilling and milling operations can be incorporated by equipping some or all of the 12 turret stations with driven tools. Its integrated automation system uses a recirculating chain conveyor equipped with carrier prisms that deliver the raw parts directly to a pick-up station for machining. This station is located behind the machining area, so the operator can at any time insert new raw parts at the front of the machine.
