The VMC, Vertical Machine Center, is a combination vertical lathe and milling machining center that performs heavy-duty turning and milling operations in one setup. In combination with an angular head, the VMC is a 5-axis machines.
The VMC range has a high power/high torque motor and a rapid traverse rate of 20m/min. All machine elements are built from casting to obtain a high stiffness that results in a stable production process. Thanks to the unique design of movable table, milling and drilling operations are possible over the whole work piece. Second advantage of this concept is that parts easily can be loaded, while table is moving away from the cross rail.
Several milling heads can be added, depending of the specifications of the work piece. Heads are load and unloaded automatically from the magazine. The VMC machines standard comes with a tool magazine of 60 tools.
Movable Cross Rail
The standard VMC in combination with a movable cross rail allows the production not only of rings and wheels but also parts with a height more than the radius of the work piece.Angular Milling Heads
Angular Milling Heads
To maintain a high torque, we developed and produce the Angular heads in house. Our Angular heads can handle up to 5100Nm torque. Next to fix angular heads we also offer swiveling heads with a position angle of each 5° up to 0, 5°. In the range of milling heads we also offer units with special shapes to have better access on difficult accessible work faces. The different heads are locked by a Hirth and clamped on the spindle by hydraulic pressure.
High Speed Head
High speed heads are used for drilling and precision milling. The high speed heads are direct driven by electro spindles.
The complexity of different work pieces requires a large number of optional milling heads. Milling heads are stowed and changed automatically in the back of the machine.
